DNV GL has certified German maritime services providers Liberty One and Handelshaus Bremen under ISO 9001 and 14001 for their quality and environment management systems.

The two companies operate and charter ships for third parties. Implementing such management systems allows ships and companies to achieve sustained improvement and control of their operating processes and environmental compatibility.

“This is a milestone in the ongoing development of the company against a testing commercial background,” said Dietrich Schulz, owner and managing director of Liberty One. “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 optimization of our processes and at the same time on enhancing our fleet’s environmental soundness.”

Matthias Ritters, regional manager Germany, DNV GL, added: “These upcoming firms 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.”

DNV GL offers its combined certification for clients, with the two optional ISO standards alongside the mandatory ISM Code covering international safety management.
