Bunker company Monjasa says that during the month of January it has undergone "the industry's most thorough" independent testing, inspection, and certification, which has been carried out by Bureau Veritas.

The Danish firm says it now has "the most comprehensive certified quality management and compliance set-up in the global bunker industry", and that it "leads the race" for improved quality bunker operations on a global level.


Monjasa confirmed on Friday that it has obtained the following certifications:

ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management)

ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:

a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and

b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management)

ISO 14001:2015 is an international standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system.

OHSAS 18001:2008 (Occupational Health and Safety Management)

OHSAS 18001 is an Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series for health and safety management systems. It is intended to help an organizations to control occupational health and safety risks.

Monjasa and Bureau Veritas: statements

"Monjasa managed to upgrade its unique combination of quality certifications and become the first bunker company to meet the new and harsh requirements, which were executed in 2015 and increasingly take a risk management approach," Monjasa noted.

Bureau Veritas said in a statement: "From the whole organisation and especially from the upper management level we have seen strong leadership commitment to support the certification process. The Management Review Report is comprehensive and documents all relevant aspects in relation to the performance of the system."

Monjasa added: "We always look to the future and are delighted to receive this vote of confidence in our operations from the most recognised and independent industry expert.

"In the current market situation, we see quality management and compliance as a prerequisite to work in bunkering, and we have decided to act in consequence. We have made million-dollar investments both in terms of human expertise and creating end-to-end IT solutions in all our physical and trading operations."

Svend Stenberg Molholt, Monjasa Group COO, remarked: "Monjasa declines several bunker fuel inquiries every week. Trading opportunities, that do not comply with our quality standards or are doubtful in relation to our strict compliance policies, we simply leave to our competitors."
