Besides collective representation, offering individual service and advice to its members is at least as important to the KVNR. Expert and experienced KVNR members of staff are able to advise you on any and all relevant subjects. In short, as a member you will have access to invaluable knowledge, experience and best practices accrued over many years; at any time and on all subjects that are relevant to you. The KVNR range of services
The KVNR offers a range of services, based on expertise. KVNR staff members are actively involved in all areas of the shipping industry, ranging from the maritime labour markets (education and manning) to sustainability (environment, innovation, safety and quality) and the business climate (taxation, legal matters, insurance and shipping politics). As experts in their profession they are able to offer support and advice in your dealings with –for instance– Nautilus NL or authorities like the Transport and Water Management Inspectorate. KVNR circulars
Internal communication with the membership is equally important. The KVNR will regularly inform you of topical matters by means of circulars and newsletters, giving you, as a member, the opportunity to anticipate the fast-changing rules and regulations, new (inter)national developments and intended policies in maritime politics in a timely fashion. Circulars are published in both Dutch and English. In addition members have access to the members-only part of the website where they can compile a personalised information package, applicable to their personal situation and circumstances.
