360 Quality

How we verify the quality of our members


Before endorsing ships, terminals and stevedores a standardised process of inspection leading to the issuance of a 360 Quality Certificate takes place. It was developed by the members, classification societies and recognised surveying companies. The organisations inspecting and issuing certificates have to fulfil certain requirements set in the 360 Quality Code and the Association approves such organisations. After the initial inspection, a renewal inspection will take place every two years.
