Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) announced the development of a revised Code of Practice (COP) for Bunker Quantity Surveying. The second section has been developed to address delivery of fuel via Mass Flow Meter, not only to address the Port of Singapore requirements, but to be prepared to conduct such surveys in any bunker port in the world.
The updated version of the VPS COP, released this month, is a culmination of the combined work carried out by our global bunker survey operations managers based in Rotterdam, Singapore, Fujairah & Houston. This is based upon experience gained from completing in excess of 100,000 surveys world-wide.
The COP has been developed in 2 sections. The first covers standard bunker quantity survey working procedures & includes ethics, safety, pre/post & during bunkering checks, sampling requirements and managing quantity variances. The COP also covers the important need to develop & assess Quality Control of the field surveyor.
Whereas this new VPS Code of Practice for Bunker Quantity Surveying is an internal quality document, the COP may be made available for external review as a controlled document on a case to case basis.
