Korean Register releases version 20 of conventions database

The Korean Register (KR) has launched the 20th version of its KR-CON digital database of information on international conventions and other instruments from the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The program, first developed and launched in 2000, has been updated to improve speed and stability, enabling users to install the USB version of the database directly onto a computer. There is also a version of the system available for installation via the web if required.

The 20th version of KR-CON includes amendments to SOLAS, MARPOL, and other procedures and guidelines adopted by the 31st Assembly of the IMO, the 104th Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), and the 77th Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) in 2021. The database will be continuously updated to reflect any revised documents adopted in the future, KR says.

“The 20th version of KR-CON has significantly accelerated the speed of the program through two types of installation versions and improved its stability by allowing the program to be driven directly on a PC, thereby overcoming the limits of the USB performance,” adds Jungkun Lee, General Manager of KR’s Convention & Legislation Service Team.

“We will continue to improve the program with changes that reflect our customers’ needs for a better user experience.”
