IRClass provides independent technical and cost-effective advice to owners through specification services, which include:
Pre- Contract Service
IRClass offers pre-contract service to ship owners in ensuring that all technical matters are suitably addressed from the start. This service helps mitigate against technical risks including:
The above service includes:
IRClass will interact with the concerned stakeholders to understand the envisaged operations. This will be the foundation on which the technical specification will be based on. Then the regulatory requirements for the said operations will be built into the same. Aspects relating to human elements will also be considered while preparing the specification.
IRClass will scrutinize the technical bids of the short-listed bidders and prepare a ‘Deviation Report’ giving the comparison between the bids. This will enable the owner to bring all bids on par and will assist in finalising the bidder based on non-technical aspects, such as commercials.
Upon finalisation of the bidder and before signing of the contract, IRClass will assist the ship owners in reviewing the final build specification, to ensure that all major aspects are incorporated and that scope for misinterpretations, if any, are minimised.
