According to the source, UANI currently is focused on 'pressuring shipping companies', however there are 'more campaigns coming up'. CCS reportedly surveys tankers of the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC), and has provided certification coverage to the NITC's Darab and Justice vessels. In its letter to China Classification Society (CCS), UANI expressed their concern about CCS's business activities with Iran. The letter states that 'by providing certification and other maritime services to Iranian vessels owned by sanctioned entities, CCS is directly facilitating the ability of the Iranian regime to circumvent multilateral sanctions that have been imposed to prevent it from further developing its illegal nuclear weapons program'... UANI says CCS may also run afoul of U.S. law if it maintains its business activity with Iran... In July, KR had sidestepped calls by UANI to halt its verification work saying it was concerned that vessel safety and marine environment protection could be compromised." (Trend, "UANI warns China's CS about Iranian vessels, plans more campaigns," 10/4/2012)
