The Russian-Chinese relations in the field of shipbuilding and shipping industries has been developing since the late 1940s, when in the People's Republic of China (PRC) Inspection of the USSR Register of Shipping started its functioning with survey stations in Shanghai and Dalian engaged in survey of sea-going ships under construction and in service. The RS experts contributed substantially to the qualified personnel training, leading to the establishment of the Chinese Classification Society in 1956. In 1962, the Inspection activity was suspended. Taking into consideration the customers’ needs as regards the technical support of the projects to be implemented in China, RS renewed its activities in the region: in 2003, the Branch Office was opened in Tianjin and in 2013, in Shanghai. The RS Branch Office in China is nowadays the largest one located outside the Russian Federation.
Established in 1913, Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) is one of the leading classification societies. Recognised by the European Union. Member of IACS. The RS activity is aimed at enhancing high standards of maritime safety and minimising the negative impact of human activities on the environment through scientifically based risk assessment and risk management procedures.
