Iranian oil tankers obtain 2 new intl. certificates

TEHRAN, Sep. 26 (MNA) – Iranian oil tanker fleet have succeeded in receiving two new international certificates including ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015.

As a result of cruel international sanctions, the process of issuing expert and international certificates had stopped for Iranian tankers who were consequently banned from entering major European ports.

Nevertheless, all sanction-related restrictions were alleviated once the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was implemented.

National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) fleet is now able to commute in Europe, Mediterranean Sea, South Korea, China, India, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, UAE, Libya, Algeria, Turkey and also some Latin America countries.

Norwegian Company DNV GL, upon reviewing qualification of National Iranian Tanker Company, approved its quality and the environment aspects.

DNV GL is an international accredited registrar and classification society headquartered near Oslo, Norway.

National Iranian Tanker Company was awarded with ISO9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certificates.

NITC currently has about 13,550 employees and 350 offices operating in more than 100 countries, and provides services for several industries, including maritime, renewable energy, oil & gas, electrification, food & beverage and healthcare.
