Subsea and marine recruitment specialist etpm announced two industry accreditations. The Aberdeen-headquartered company achieved its ISI 9001:2008 and 12001:2008 four months ahead of target.
etpm also decided to take a proactive approach to gain Maritime Labor Convention (MLC) 2006 certification. The MLC 2006, which covers maritime labor law, came into force internationally in August 2013 and will come into force in the United Kingdom next year.
While certification is not yet mandatory, recruitment companies can request that they be audited to show that their practices are already MLC compliant. etpm volunteered for audit and has been certified a year before implementation.
