MSC achieves new certifications

Following successful recent audits, led by Chief Sustainable Development Officer Dirk Vande Velde, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company has now achieved two new ISO certifications.

During the audit process, MSC was assessed for, among other areas, its Booking and Operations, Hospitality, Logistics, Corporate Sustainable Social Responsibility, Facilities Management, Legal and Claims Handling, Code of Conduct, Documentation, Energy Efficiency and Customer Contract Reviews.

“We have every right to feel very pleased and proud about this result,” says Dirk Vande Velde. “Both reports resulted in great feedback comments, with only a few small areas for us to continue to work on.”

MSC’s sustainability team will now focus upon the ISO 14001 audit, which takes place in the latter months of this year and includes an emphasis on environmental undertakings and the new ISO 9001 2015 version. In particular, the new 9001 version will include the different aspects of Risk Management in this business.
