Bureau Veritas is managing the consequences of the global coronavirus outbreak, protecting health and helping ensure global business continuity. It said “Safety is our absolute priority. The health of our teams, of our teams’ families and of our clients is our top priority. At Bureau Veritas, we have implemented a coordinated approach at global and local levels. Globally we have in place clear guidance for our people and all their interactions prioritizing health, safety and welfare. Measures have been established to ensure that Marine & Offshore surveys and delivery of services can continue and that requirements for certificate continuity can be addressed to minimize the chance of operational disruption. If either physical or remote surveys are impossible short-term certificate extensions will be available. Our extensive network of offices will be able to address any questions related to global survey and service delivery.”

The following measures are in place:
Strict adherence to applicable government and health authority instructions and guidelines
Requirements to follow mandatory and self-isolation requirements
Travel restrictions
Quarantine protocols
Remote working for our people whenever possible
Use of protective equipment, including masks, gloves, soap, hand-sanitizers and temperature monitors
Strict adherence to and support of site security access controls - as well as site health and safety measures
Ensuring our global network is educated in updated coronavirus prevention measures - we are in constant contact with our people to address any concerns and questions

Remote working, remote surveys and service delivery are enabling business continuity as a response to managing the crisis. Remote verification is enabling testing to occur with remotely located BV, client and stakeholder teams providing complete confidence to all involved. Bureau Veritas has developed proven tools required for remote operations and these are in use for effective service delivery.

Further measures and additional hygiene and preventive controls may need to be deployed as the virus continues to spread. BV is following the advice of the World Health Organization and working with flag administrations to help ensure certificate validity.
