Piraeus Port Authority (PPA) was awarded double certification against ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 by Lloyd’s Register. These certifications congratulate the Port of Piraeus for its quality, environmental management and pollution prevention.

The certifications were awarded on June 6 during Posidonia. Capt. Weng Lin, PPA Deputy CEO, was presented with certifications against ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management and ISO14001:2015 for Environmental Management by Mr Nick Brown, LR Marine & Offshore Director.

PPA’s certification started against ISO9001 and ISO14001 with LR in 2013. This certification has been extended to cover the Provision of Port Cruise, Ferry, RoRo & Container Terminal Services, and the management of Logistics Center, Port Construction & Maintenance Projects.

Capt. Weng Lin, PPA Deputy CEO, receiving the certifications, stated:

“The port of Piraeus has included in its Strategic Planning the certification of the provided services and the protection of the environment. PPA invests in management systems applied worldwide aiming at continuous improvement of its services.”

Moreover, last week the Port of Piraeus, along with the Ports of Rotterdam and Le Havre renewed their EcoPorts’ environmental management standard (PERS).

PERS certifications imply that a port is effectively monitoring the environmental challenges and is implementing an improved environmental management.
