At AET, we believe it is important to work alongside the key industry bodies to ensure a consistently high level of quality is maintained throughout our industry.
Our ships comply with all international and regional regulations allowing them to operate globally, and we maintain the ISO 9001 quality designation and the ISO 14001 standard for environmental awareness. We also participate in the voluntary Tanker Management Safety Assessment (TMSA) initiative, the Long Beach (California) Green Flag programme and the internationally recognised Green Flag scheme that promotes best practice in environmental management of vessels.
We are committed to continual improvement in our operations and make a major commitment to training at all levels. Onboard training is mandatory for all officers and ratings and complies fully with the Tanker Officer Training Standards System (TOTS), which was developed by Intertanko with considerable input from AET management.
AET people also take roles in the US Industry Task Force on Lightering, the Chamber of Shipping of America, Intertanko’s Worldscale committee and participate in the US Coast Guard Ship Rider Programme to give young coast guard recruits a taste of life at sea.
