Quality

The operation of the Port of Rauma is in all its activities steered by the Integrated Management System certified by Det Norske Veritas, and based on ISO 9001 (quality system), ISO 14001 (environmental system) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety system) standards to meet both the organisation's own requirements and the requirements specified by stakeholders. The certified system is designed to ensure and improve the quality of operation, support environmental protection as well as prevention of environmental pollution in balance with social and financial needs, and to prevent any adverse impact on the health of the personnel.
