Oil and Marine Agencies company receives ISO certification
Oil and Marine Agencies (OMA-Ghana), a leading indigenous shipping and logistics company, has secured the ISO 9001:2008 certification.
The certification is to make the company operate its Quality Management Systems in compliance with international standards and best practices.
Mr Samuel Edmund, Executive Director of OMA Ghana, told the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Wednesday that the issuance of the certificate by the Det Norske Veritas, a reputable ISO audit company, followed a rigorous assessment of the company’s systems.
He said the company specified requirements for a quality management system, where an organisation needed to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide high quality services that met customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
He said it also aimed to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
“What this means for OMA Ghana is that their products and services meet international standards and are capable of delivering the same high quality service at all times,” he said.
He said it also paved the way for OMA Ghana to bid for international contracts and cater for high value customers around the globe.
Mr Edmund said this, combined with the quality, health, safety, environment culture, local training programme and commitment to corporate social responsibility, ensured that the company supported Ghanaians.
He said the company had several years of experience in the West African shipping and logistics sector, delivering cargo to offshore vessels, land locked countries as well as domestic deliveries for a wide portfolio of clients across all sectors.
Mr Edmund said the certification was consequently a major boost towards the quest to be a leading shipping service provider in the country.
