Cayman signs maritime safety deal

The top management of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands recently signed in Norway an agreement with Det Norske Veritas, the Norwegian classification society.

‘In light of the numerous and significant changes in the industry in recent years, we are entering into new agreements with our seven global class partners to ensure that we keep pace with these changes and maintain Cayman at the forefront of the international maritime safety arena,’ said the Maritime Authority’s CEO, A. Joel Walton.

DNV is one of the world’s largest companies involved in classifying ships.

Mr. Walton headed Cayman’s delegation to Norway.

The official signing took place at Det Norske Veritas headquarters in Hoevik, Norway. Signing on behalf of that organisation was DNV’s Chief Operating Officer Tor Sevensen.
