Bunker survey licence issued to 51 Singapore firms

04 Jan 2017 12:21 GMT

Licensing scheme is designed to raise the standards of bunker surveying firms and give the MPA a greater regulatory oversight.



The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has confirmed that 51 companies have been granted a bunker survey licence to operate in the port of Singapore.

Of the 51 companies that have been issued with a licence, 14 have been given a three-month provisional licence.

First announced in October 2014, the licensing scheme is designed to raise the standards of bunker surveying companies and allow the MPA to have a greater regulatory oversight over bunker surveying companies and bunker surveyors.

"This new licensing scheme for bunker surveying companies complements the existing schemes of requiring bunker surveyors to be licenced and requiring bunker survey companies to be accredited to ISO 17020. We believe that together, these schemes will enhance industry confidence in the many bunker surveying companies in Singapore and further help protect the interest of the relevant bunker players in this multi-billion dollar business. In the long term, we expect that both the bunker and shipping community will benefit from this," said Darajit Daud, Senior Manager, SGS Testing & Control Services Singapore Pte Ltd and Chairman of the Technical Committee for Cargo Inspection, under SPRING Singapore.

"SSA welcomes this initiative by MPA to license the bunkering surveying companies. We are confident that the licensing of bunker surveying companies will reassure buyers and sellers that Singapore's bunkering industry is well-served by trained and certified professionals - this initiative, together with the mandatory implementation of mass flow meters (MFMs), demonstrate MPA's commitments towards promoting Singapore as a premium bunkering hub," commented S K Lim, Chairman of the SSA Services Committee.
