 Nippon Kaiji Kyokai Approval – February 2001

Motherwell Control Systems (MCS) has recently renewed one of its approvals for the Marine Level Gauge to comply with Class NK’s Society’s Rules, 2000 edition and has been issued with a new approval number (See below).

They are one of the World’s leading classification societies. ‘Nippon Kaiji Kyokai, known as ClassNK, is an independent, not-for-profit, third party arbiter of safety. Over its 100-year history, the Society has been dedicated to safeguarding life and property at sea and preventing marine pollution through the establishment of universally recognized standards for the design, construction and maintenance of ships and other marine structures’. (Class NK, Web Site, 2000)

The approval certifies the gauge for use on ships carrying General Cargo, Crude Oil, L.P.G. and Bulk Chemical Goods.

For MCS quality is paramount, regular process evaluation takes place to maintain and improve its very high standards.

MCS operate a Total Quality Management System and as a result obtained the BS EN ISO 9002, the internationally recognised quality seal of approval. This ensures products are made and delivered exactly to the requirements specified by its customers.

Mr. Graham Ash, Quality Representative said: “The quality of our products is vital, and this new approval further assures our customers of Motherwell Control System’s dedication to it”.
