CLASSNK GRANTS FIRST CybR-G NOTATION TO NYK TANKER

Monday, November 8, 2021 

Classification Society ClassNK has granted Cyber Resilience-Guideline (CybR-G) notation to ‘Tateshina’, an oil tanker built by Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS) for NYK Line.

CybR-G notation represents that the ship design has incorporated cyber security measures in accordance with ClassNK’s Guidelines for Designing Cyber Security Onboard Ships, and that it is feasible for ship operation considering cyber security.

 ClassNK's Guidelines for Designing Cyber Security Onboard Ships were compiled from best practices for newbuilding designs of shipyards and shipowners, from the view of identifying computer systems to be protected from cyber attacks, and building a network to safeguard them. The second edition of the Guidelines incorporates the international cyber security standards for industrial automation and control systems IEC 62443 series and the latest recommendations on cyber resilience for new ships (Rec. No. 166) published by the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) in May 2020.

Receiving the application from NACKS based on NYK Lines’s intent, ClassNK carried out the verification in line with the Guidelines. Upon satisfactory completion of examining the documents/plan and results of risk assessments and on-site surveys, ClassNK has issued its first class certificate with CybR-G notation.
