Korean Register releases 16th version of KR-CON software

The Korean Register (KR) has released its 16th KR-CON, a software program that helps shipowners, operators, builders, surveyors, and Port State Control officers to search for International Maritime Organization (IMO) instruments more accurately, quickly, and conveniently.

The program, which was first launched in 1997 provides all IMO conventions, codes, resolutions and circulars in a CD-ROM format. It enables users to identify the regulations applicable to an individual ship simply by inputting its details. Since the first version was launched, KR-CON has been revised and updated 15 times and is now available in English, Korean and Chinese and easily accessed on USB, via the web and a mobile application.

The latest edition features a more user-friendly interface with better-spaced layouts hotkeys for the side navigation so that the users enjoy better readability and easier viewing.

An enhanced cloud function has also been enabled to provide users with access to the most up-to-date IMO Convention database, regardless of their location.

The most recent amendments adopted at the 98th MSC (Maritime Safety Committee), the 71st MEPC (Maritime Environment Protection Committee), SOLAS (International convention for the safety of life at sea), MARPOL (Marine Pollution Treaty) and IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) Code are all included in the 16th edition of KR-CON.
