Letters from the COO: Announcements:  
In addition to these measures, we have also taken the necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of our international team located over our network of regional offices, and our network of auditors and inspectors. We understand the great impact this has had not only shipping, but on daily life for many of our clients, our staff, and our seafarers. And in light of this we want to support the industry as much as possible in this time of need.

Please contact the Registry and any of our Regional Offices for anything else we may be able to do to support you at this time. We will work together to ensure you continue to receive nothing but the utmost service in the usual timely and efficient manner.
