Service Suppliers Approval

Several works related to the issuance of classification or statutory certificates of ships or other services of HRS are carried out by specialized firms. Normally such firms are selected and make direct agreement with HRS clients for offering their services and thus, cannot be considered as HRS subcontractors. However, as far as their work is related to the work of HRS, it is of the outmost importance to be safeguarded that such works will meet quality standards acceptable to HRS. For this reason we have developed specific work instructions and quality procedures that guarantee compliance with HRS requirements and ensure that each specialized firm provides services approved by our organization.
