HSQE Certification

ATHENIAN SEA CARRIERS LTD Ltd. takes pride in being amongst the first shipping companies to have achieved the ISO 9001 certification.

The decision was based on its obligation under ship-management contracts to provide qualified crew and the choice of the scheme is intended to stress out the importance attached by the Company to having qualified crew on board its ships.

The initial certification audit was successfully completed on the 16th of March 2000 by ABS.

The scope of the ISO certification was defined as "Operation of oil tankers, and design, development and provision of training courses to seafarers"

Pursuing our Environmental Policy and awareness, ATHENIAN SEA CARRIERS proceeded with the application and the achievement of certification to the demanding ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standard, on September 2002. It covered all the ships in its fleet as well as the company's head office in Athens.

The rigorous management system requirements were audited and certified by ABS Quality Evaluations. While presenting the certificate, ABS President Robert D. Somerville had said, "Only a very few ship owners in the world have achieved this standard.

Action should focus on the source of pollution to the maximum possible extent. This process would not be possible without the commitment of our employees. Environment Program is part of our daily business, both at office and on board the ships." noted Christos Stathis, Chief Executive Officer of ATHENIAN.

The efforts for further improving our Management System and thus better satisfying our increasing stakeholder needs, were being rewarded in 2007. This was the year that ATHENIAN achieved certification to the Health Safety, Quality and Environmental (HSQE) requirements of the ABS Guide for Marine Health Safety, Quality and Environmental Management. Certification took place on 11th of December 2007 and certificate was issued on 8th of September 2008.

The HSQE Guide incorporates all the general management system principles embodied by the ISM Code, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

Thus, ATHENIAN SEA CARRIERS complies with the sound management systems principles reflected in the requirements of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code, Quality Management Systems (ISO 9001:2015), Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001:2015) and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems (OHSAS 18001:2007).
