Dubai-based GAC Bunker Fuels, part of global shipping, marine and logistics services provider GAC, said it has joined the elite group of global bunkering companies to be awarded the ISO 9001:2008 Management System Standard certification.
The ISO 9001:2008 certificate awarded by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) recognises GAC Bunker Fuels’ best management practices in the trading and brokerage of marine fuels and lubricants across its global operational sites.
It demonstrates the company’s full compliance with the requirements of this international best practice standard, which considers a range of measures, including management responsibility, resource management, product quality and the improvement of quality management systems across the organisation, said a senior official.
