Aegean Shipping Management has become the first Greek shipping company and amongst the first worldwide to be awarded the ISO 22301 Business Continuity certification by LRQA.

During a ceremony held at both Lloyd's Register’s and Aegean’s stand yesterday, June 5, on the occasion of the Posidonia 2014 International Exhibition, George Melissanidis, CEO of Aegean Shipping Management, received the certification against ISO 22301 from Lloyd’s Register. ISO 22301 is the international standard for Business Continuity specifying the requirements for setting up and managing an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS).

Aegean’s ISO 22301 certification is the fifth management systems certification awarded to the company by LRQA, following those of ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management, ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management, OHSAS 18001:2007 for Occupational Health & Safety Management System and ISO 50001:2011 for Energy Management.

Melissanidis said at the presentation ceremony, “Being the first Greek shipping company to achieve Business Continuity ISO 22301 certification we confirm our commitment for continuous improvement and enhancement of our customer satisfaction. This international standard will reassure our customers and interested parties for our Company's response abilities and mechanisms for quick recovery in any case required."

"Of course no one likes to encounter either natural or other disasters. However, we do believe that you need to be best prepared for such incidents when they do happen.” Melissanidis continued, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Hellenic Lloyd's & LRQA for their support and professional guidance not only during the recent certification process but throughout our long-term relationship.”

“Aegean Shipping Management S.A. joins the global elite of ISO 22301 certified companies, and becomes the first Greek shipping company to receive such a recognition which is a very significant achievement in the highly competitive and international tanker industry. We wish to congratulate Aegean management and staff for their efforts and continued commitment towards continuous improvement,” said Apostolos Poulovassilis, Lloyd’s Register Marine Regional Manager EMEA.
