DYNAMARINe runs the ISO 9001 accredited service onlineSTS.net since 2011, which focuses on due diligence policy and procedures of STS stakeholders. The verification of STS Service providers' quality assurance, is addressed as service, in conjunction with the completion of FORM A questionnaire. This procedure is in accordance with industry practices and IMO requirements, in order to assist users of service providers, to exercise their due diligence.
onlineSTS.net concept designed to assist STS Stakeholders to exercise due diligence in STS operations. For this reason STS Stakeholders need to be assured that the STS Service provider, who is nominated by charterer, fulfils specific safety and quality standards. These standards are related with the requirements of the regulations (IMO) and industry good practices and guidelines (OCIMF). Furthermore, STS Stakeholders should be assured that all the necessary resources are in place, afloat and ashore, for providing the expected quality service.
