- Lloyd's Register

Lloyd's Register Sponsor pictureLives and livelihoods depend on quality systems you will probably never see, ships, roads and railtracks on which you may never travel and distant production plants about which you have never heard.

We check that assets and systems work so that people and communities around the world can get on with everyday life. We are driven by a strong sense that what we are doing matters.

To make this happen, we set, uphold and apply high technical standards of design, manufacture, construction, maintenance, operation and performance across many industries to the benefit of many businesses.

Lloyd’s Register stands apart: independent, objective, experienced and uncompromising in our commitment to helping our clients.
