Damen Shiprepair Brest (France) received certification from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) for aligning its quality and safety management systems with internationally recognized standards.

A certificate of approval for the ISO 9001:2008, management standards was presented by LRQA France at the shipyard premises on 26 November 2013.

Damen Brest’sManaging Director Jos Goris commented, “We are proud to be awarded with the certificate, in particular since we started this process 11 months ago and only a couple of months after the shiprepair activities started in second quarter of 2012. Damen Shiprepair Brest passed the five-day audit without any nonconformity.”

Mr. Goris continued, “By adhering to these globally-recognized best practices, we are positioning Damen Shiprepair Brest as a professional and well organized ship repair facility with a high management focus on Safety, Quality, Reliability and Transparency. We are convinced that our valued customers will note the difference.”

“Our next step will be to become ISO14001 certified, but we will first give our staff some ‘recovery’ time from the audit for ISO9001:2008. We have already started implementing several environmental procedures and it is our aim to further improve our environmental footprint in the years to come,” Mr. Goris added.
