As per the latest Marine Operations Note 01-2020, Liberia released from Liberian Administration (LISCR), IHM service suppliers carrying out Visual/Sampling test is to apply for acceptance from LISCR.
CTI had already been accepted by Liberia in 2016 to conduct IHM related work on Liberia registered ships. Upon receiving the Note, CTI made a prompt response for the review and acceptance. Based on the earlier documentation submitted for compliance with the requirements for IHM Expert Companies and the active action, CTI received the ‘IHM Expert Company Letter of Acceptance’ in a smooth and satisfied way.
LISCR has confirmed that CTI China 【Centre Testing International Pinbiao (Shanghai) Co.
