Class NK has published “Guidelines for the cyber resilience of on-board systems and equipment”. The guidelines explain the new Unified Requirements (UR) of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS). They are intended to support measures to ensure the cyber security of ships.

With “UR E26” (Cyber Resilience of Ships) and “UR E27” (Cyber Resilience of On-Board Systems and Equipment), the IACS has defined minimum requirements for cyber resilience, i.e. the ability to reduce the occurrence of incidents due to cyber attacks and mitigate their effects.[ds_preview] The guidelines apply to new ships whose construction is commissioned from July 1, 2024.

This is the first time cyber security has been included as a mandatory requirement in class rules. To facilitate smooth compliance with the requirements for the industry, Class NK has published the guidelines primarily for manufacturers and suppliers of marine systems and equipment, describing the interpretation of the individual requirements of the “ER E27” and the approval process – including the review of documents and surveys.
