History

История
1913

Society for classification of sea, river and lake vessels “Russian Register” was established by the leading insurance societies of the Russian Empire in 1913 for technical surveying of the developing fleet. Therefore, the name “Russian Register” is historically related to conformity assessment.

Russian Register’s logo of 1913 uses Peter the Great’s cipher in the form of two crossed and inversed Latin letters “R” with an anchor added to it. In the same form cipher with anchor has merged into logo and trademark of Certification Association “Russian Register”.
