What  does  it  involve?  What  value  does  all  the  certification  bring?  Can  we  profit/save money  on  certification?  What  is  the  Danish  Maritime  Authority's  and  Class  companies'
role? What is the status of "Mutual Recognition" of the Classification Society’s certificates? Attend this conference and be much wiser on a difficult subject.
ISO certification and the value it provides, inter alia, as a quality management  system. Are there  many  benefits  in  a  dynamic  quality  management  tool  as  a  strategic  management
system? Can it be measured both on the company's/ship-owner´s bottom line,  and on  its image  and  employee  satisfaction?  Come  and  hear  some  good  case  studies  from
companies and ship-owners that have realized major advantages from the certification, but not without obstacles.

Is it difficult and expensive to develop and certify a quality management system or does it lead  to greater freedom to develop and think crea tively, because everyone knows what to
do and not least, who has to do it?
New  figures  from  the  International  Standardization  Organization  (ISO)  show  that  the number  of  Danish  companies,  which  are  dedicated  to  the  International  Management
System ISO 9001, has increased significantly. There has been almost a doubling in the number of Danish companies that has been ISO 9001 certified in quality management  -from 1505 companies in 2011 to 2780 companies in 2012. Every time   even  more Danish companies see the  value of working with quality management. This is especially true for small and medium-sized enterprises, which are increasingly becoming certified.
Are you in doubt about the Danish Maritime Authority’s and the Classification Societies’ role in all kind of certification and audit? About what the responsibilities are and if there is a
difference between whether it is the Authority or Class that performs the certification/audit? How to get  help if a foreign authority/Port State Control is questioning the certification?  -Then join this exciting event and get wiser.
