Mwani Qatar receives ISM Code certification


Mwani Qatar has received the ISM Code certification from the French standards classification authority "Bureau Veritas" in a step that emphasizes the quality of marine services in Mwani Qatar which has now become one of the few companies in the country to obtain this international certificate.

Mwani Qatar passed the rigorous audit stage and received the certification for the International Management Code for the Safe Operation of Ships and for Pollution Prevention (ISM Code).

This certificate is a new addition to the accomplishments achieved by the company, the most recent of which were ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management System, ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management System and OHSAS 18001:2007 for Occupational Health and Safety Management System from Lloyds Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), a recognized UK accreditation body.

This latest achievement represents a qualitative leap not only in terms of enhancing operations and the efficiency of the marine services unit, but also in terms of upgrading the company's competitive capabilities in marine services. It also reflects Mwani Qatar's relentless efforts in providing world-class maritime services to its customers in accordance with the Ministry of Transport and Communications' Strategic plan and the objectives of strengthening Qatar's maritime sector.

This important recognition has been achieved thanks to the hard work and efforts of the team at the Marine Services unit, which has shown professionalism and extensive experience in ensuring the delivery of high quality and cost-effective services. The certification confirms Mwani Qatar's compliance with all mandatory regulations and that codes, guidelines and standards recommended by the IMO and other regulatory authorities have been adhered to.
