Fishing vessels

Bureau Veritas is a world leader in the classification of fishing vessels. Although these ships may not weigh a lot in terms of global tonnage, they are extremely technologically advanced vessels and therefore need their own set of rules.


As an owner, you must comply with a wide range of safety requirements as fishing is one of the world’s most dangerous professions.


In addition, fishing vessels are being pushed to travel to increasingly distant locations to obtain their catch, which implies a more complicated ship.



Ensure the safety of your employees and vessels


By classifying your fishing ships, you demonstrate your commitment to making your vessels a safe working environment for fishermen and to the safety of your employees.


It has been well documented throughout the years that the introduction of classification principles regarding both the operation and the construction of fishing vessels has strongly improved safety for employees and vessels.


Bureau Veritas also grants you access to technical expertise and helps you face your difficult challenges.

Why choose Bureau Veritas?

 

  • Our technical expertise

 

We have classed 13.5 % of the international fishing fleet (vessels over 100 GT). Our fleet is “technology-driven” and not “tonnage-driven.”
Fishing vessels incorporate “state of the art” technology, which is one of the reasons why Bureau Veritas has focused and invested in this sector for so many years.

 

  • Our global network

 

Today, fleets must look for their fisheries in increasingly distant locations, which entails greater ship complexity and the need for more comfortable ships. There is also a growing need for more classification sites around the world so that fishing vessels can be inspected wherever they are on the map. 
In this regard, Bureau Veritas has the best network of marine surveyors near the fisheries of Africa, the Seychelles, Mauricio and other islands in the Indian Ocean, South America and Europe.
Thanks to our global network, Bureau Veritas can accommodate the needs of fishing vessels wherever they are needed.

 

  • Our knowledge of rules & legislation and our recognition by flag states

 

Bureau Veritas is recognized by the European Community for the Marine Equipment Directive, and by most of the flag states to act on their behalf for statutory certification.
