Since November 2012, Trans-Mar Services has been certified by the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping for the production of pilot and embarkation rope ladders, as well as for testing and subsequent certification of the fitness of the ladders. In the beginning of 2018, we successfully completed our certification by the European Agency for Inspection and Certification, and we already have MED Certificates for the production of our ladders.
As a rescue equipment manufacturer, our aim is to be compliant with all European directives and requirements in the production of marine life-saving and fire-fighting equipment.
In regards of the services offered by Trans-Mar, on the 17th of October 2018, representatives of the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) did a check at the Trans-Mar Services base.
Trans-Mar Services is the largest commodity merchandise in Bulgaria. We have a warehouse that offers a variety of stocks – rescue and fire-fighting – services that are subject to a strict control by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).
The check was passed successfully without any negative comments from the agency and we received useful recommendations from them.
The inspection was useful for both sides – we gained new experience and knowledge from our European counterparts and they were convinced that small countries such as Bulgaria have companies that follow strictly the rules of the European Commission and all maritime directives. We can define this as a great success for our company because it is a proof of how we are doing our job on a daily basis.
