Independent Danish bunkering firm Monjasa has appointed quality assurance and risk management company DNV-GL as its new auditor, after engaging the services of Bureau Veritas in 2014.
“This year Monjasa has transferred its ISO-certificates to leading global quality assurance and risk management company DNV-GL,” it says.
“The Monjasa Group decided to change auditors because we were presented with a dynamic partnership model for auditing across our global organisation.
“Also, following four years with solid cooperation with Bureau Veritas, the time is right to explore new learning opportunities and to further improve.”
According to Monjasa, the bunker industry is growing increasingly complex.
As such, the company has since 2013 invested resources to ensure commitment to Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) backed by the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO).
It is currently backed by ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
“With everyone in the shipping industry busy preparing for IMO’s 2020 global sulphur cap, the importance of quality management from sourcing to delivery is only going to increase,” explains Group COO, Svend Mølholt.
“In our day-to-day business, our ISO certified management systems allow us to start a dialogue with our suppliers and customers around quality and to document our efforts and progress.”
