The China Classification Society (CCS) has granted its first type approval certificate in China for an onboard computer monitoring and alarm system. The system, developed by Supcon Ocean Technology (Zhejiang) Co., meets the requirements of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) URE27. This is a significant step for China’s shipbuilding industry in addressing ship cyber security risks. The increasing digitalization and intelligence on ships has led to more systems and equipment being connected to the ship network, which increases the risk of cyber security threats. The development of ship computer system cyber security solutions is crucial for the shipping industry, ship equipment manufacturing industry, and classification societies. The CCS has previously issued network security firewall type approval certificates, and this latest approval adds to their efforts in addressing ship cyber security risks.
