Far East Regional Office (FERO)

Overseas Marine Certification Services (OMCS CLASS) began operations in Asia as early as 2004. With the objective of providing better service to its clients in the region, considering the time difference with the Americas, thereby minimizing response time in Asia; OMCS CLASS decided to open our semi-independent regional office.

OMCS CLASS Far East Regional Office is located in Shanghai, China and operates under a certified quality management system in accordance with ISO 9001:2008. This certification guarantees uniformity of all of the processes that are used by OMCS CLASS.

In 2010, OMCS CLASS was visited by the auditors of the China Maritime Authority (MSA) to not only verify our capacity to provide appropriate services in China, but also confirm compliance with all existing laws that are applicable to such an organization. As a result, OMCS CLASS formally received approval from the MSA as a recognized organization, which enables it to operate throughout China. OMCS CLASS now makes a difference not only by providing quality service to its clients based on technical and managerial experience of its staff, but in a fast and efficient response to all requests.
