Classification society DNV GL has certified maritime services provider Liberty One under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 for its quality and environment management system. Matthias Ritters, DNV GL Regional Manager Germany, presented the certificates in Bremen to Dietrich Schulz, owner and Managing Director of Liberty One, along with Capt. Jan Stahmer, responsible for health and safety, environment and quality.
“This is a milestone in the ongoing development of the company against a testing commercial background,” said Dietrich Schulz. “We are all about protecting life and the environment, and are therefore delighted that our efforts should have received this independent endorsement from DNV GL. We will now continue working on sustaining optimisation of our processes and at the same time on enhancing our fleet’s environmental soundness.”
Along with Liberty One, Handelshaus Bremen also received certification under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. These certificates are awarded for introducing and observing challenging quality and environmental standards. Implementing these management systems allows ships and companies to achieve sustained improvement and control of their operating processes and environmental compatibility.
DNV GL offers its maritime clients combined certification. Along with the mandatory ISM Code covering international safety management, this also includes the two optional ISO standards. “These upcoming firms Liberty One and Handelshaus Bremen underline that quality and environmental awareness are watchwords for daily operations. They are also committing voluntarily to observe internationally recognised standards while optimising their processes,” said Matthias Ritters at the presentation of the certificates.
