Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia (BKI) remained the fourth Asian classification agencies after Japan, China and Korea, and the only one national classification agency in charge of making a classification of Indonesian flagged and foreign flagged commercial vessels regularly operating in Indonesian waters.

BKI has been conducting the vessel classification based on hull construction, machinery, and electricity installation, in a bid to evaluate vessel’s merit to sail. In addition, BKI has been entrusted by the Government to conduct surveys and statutory certifications in the name of the Government of the Republic of Indonesia, Load Line, ISM Code and ISPS Code Certifications.

BKI was established by implementing technical standards in the activities of design and construction as well as maritime surveys related to floating facilities, including vessels and offshore construction.   These standards were prepared and issued by BKI as technical publications. A vessel designed and built based on the BKI standards would obtain a Classification Certificate issued by BKI after BKI completed a set of requisite classification surveys.

As an independent Classification Agency which was self-regulatory, BKI had no interest in commercial aspects related to the design, building, ownership, operation, management, maintenance/repair, insurance or leasing of the vessel. BKI also conducted research and development for the purpose of enhancing technical quality and standards which were published to the stakeholders of vessel classification services.
