“We guarantee the safety and quality of maritime transport through a vetting system that is aligned with international practices, with acknowledgement by the various counterparts”
in Manual of Chartering and Vetting, approved by the BoD on 2014-07-31
In accordance with our HSE policy and international benchmark practices, we have established procedures for our charters and for the ships of suppliers and customers destined to the transport of our raw materials and products.
We aim to promote integrated processes that ensure transparency, control in the organization and, in particular:
- minimizing the risk associated with the maritime transport of oil products;
- encouraging partners, such as Ship Owners, Operators and Ship Managers, to manage their fleets and crews in accordance with the best practices established within the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF), promoting a culture of safety;
- promoting the training of our people that are responsible for the Shipping activities;
- ensuring the sharing of information and the development of the best practices through the participation in specialised sectoral organizations.
We guarantee the verification of the conformity of the ships operated in our maritime terminals, according to risk and operational criteria.
We have procedures for inspection and verification of the ships’ condition, certifications, crew qualifications and respective operational management. After each inspection, a vessel inspection report and the corresponding request for corrective actions, if applicable, are sent to the ship owner.
