ISO released an environmental report assurance standard. Providing guidelines on assurance for environmental reports, the ISO 14016:2020 standard will help companies build trust and confidence into the data reported.
As ship owners and operators work to improve their fleet and hull performance, and reduce their fuel bills and emissions, the industry welcomes new ISO 19030 standard for measurement of changes in hull and propeller performance, Jotun announced. In cooperation with DNV GL, the company hosted several seminars, to raise awareness on the new standard.
After an intensive 10-month review and upgrade of operating processes across the company, Gibdock has made the transition from ISO 9001:2008 to the new ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard, and from ISO 14001:2008 to the ISO 14001:2015 environmental standard.
AkzoNobel’s Marine Coatings Business has announced the launch of a new shipping industry engagement programme to support the widespread and successful adoption of ISO 19030, the new global standard for hull and propeller performance measurement.
Damen has announced that a number of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion yards have recently or will soon achieve new ISO certifications as part of an ongoing initiative to standardise operating procedures across the group.
ISO has published the long-awaited ISO 19030, a new standard conceived to measure changes in ship-specific hull and propeller performance. Jotun, an expert in marine antifouling coatings, says this move has the potential to reduce the industry’s green house gas emissions by 10 %, while saving operators up to USD 30 billion in annual energy costs.
Hempel has partnered DNV GL which utilises DNV GL’s ECO Insight solution to offer customers clear, comprehensible and verifiable analytics that track and assess hull and propeller performance.
Meeting all requirements regarding quality, safety and the environment, Damen Shipyards Antalya has secured comprehensive ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification. This achievement coincides with a period of rapid expansion that has seen the addition of three new production halls within the space of two years.
LRQA informs that ISO 50001, the international standard for Energy Management Systems, has become the latest standard to enter the ISO revisions process.
The ISO 19030 is finally nearing publication, in a move that has the potential to save the shipping industry as much as USD 30 billion in annual fuel costs.
