Why Choose CLS UK?

CLS UK (formally known as Fulcrum Maritime Systems)  has been conducting LRIT Conformance Tests since January 2009.

Our service includes a pre-test check of the information provided to us for the equipment and vessel against Inmarsat records, which means more tests pass first time!

Our dedicated Service Delivery Team is available 365 days a year to provide personal support for each LRIT Conformance Test submitted, ensuring you are kept informed at each step of the test process.

If the LRIT Test does not complete successfully first time, we will retest the equipment at no charge. If we suspect there are any issues with the equipment, our Service Delivery  Team will work with you to identify the issue and the solution.

All our tests are treated as ‘fast track’ and Conformance Test Reports are provided immediately upon successful completion of the test (providing payment was made at the time of registration).

All customers will receive email status updates with a link to the location of the vessel at the start and completion of the Conformance Test procedure, enabling you to follow the progress of your test(s).

Fulcrum Maritime bears the BSI Kitemark. This is your assurance that samples are regularly subjected to rigorous, independent testing to ensure that we comply with stringent standards for safety, product performance, or reliability.

In addition, the Kitemark also means that the quality systems of Fulcrum Maritime where the LRIT Service is made, is systematically assessed. The Kitemark is therefore Fulcrum Maritime’s commitment towards maintaining the highest possible standards.

Fulcrum Maritime is also Cyber Essentials certified.
