IJUBOA runs a certification scheme to assure the safety management systems of barge operating companies
Procedures for this vary slightly depending on whether the barge operating company has;
A document of compliance issued in accordance with the International Maritime Organisation’s International Safety Management (ISM) Code and/or;
Certification to ISO 9001, ISO 45001/OHSAS18001 which shows inclusion of the jack-up barge operations.
