Da Gama Maritime (DGM) is proud to announce that their navigation management procedures have been awarded ISO9001: 2008 certification as a result of their high standards and professional service.
The certification covers vessel navigation management and the procurement, supply and updating of navigation related charts, publications and stores to the maritime industry worldwide.
In order to demonstrate to the industry just how seriously DGM take their procedures, the brand has engaged with Lloyds Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), who are internally recognised for the high standards that they demand of their members. The focus of DGM is very much focused around a requirement to achieve a robust and constantly improving quality management system and outstanding customer service, and they were delighted to work with LRQA to achieve this.
Steve Monk, managing director of DGM commented, “I’m proud of my staff for the work they have put in to demonstrate to not only our clients but now to be recognised formally for achieving this international standard. Since company inception we have been constantly striving to not only enhance safety at sea with our navigation management, but to make it a safer place for mariners to work as a result of our on board crew training.
“It was important for us to ensure we demonstrated to the maritime industry that we set the highest standard and won’t accept second best. Therefore while it may have meant refining further the procedures we already had in place, to achieve the certification through LRQA is a major achievement.
“The professional maritime background of our account managers means our clients are always advised on the most cost effective method of maintaining their navigation outfit without ever compromising on their safety.”
DGM is a business that provides navigation management to the superyacht industry, but has recently announced a move into commercial shipping due to their understanding of what mariners require to safely navigate their routes.
