Asbestos surveys

Bureau Veritas are experts in the identification, evaluation and control of asbestos and other hazardous building materials. Our broad services support large and small clients, helping to minimise liability, meet regulation requirements, protect employees and stakeholders from the risk of asbestos and other hazardous building material exposure. Note that on ships built after 1 July 2002, asbestos is prohibited except for some vanes, joints and insulation.  After 1st January 2011 any installation of material containing asbestos is prohibited.

CAP – Condition Assessment Programme

CAP Hull is a voluntary, thorough independent verification of the actual condition of the hull requested by owners mostly for chartering purposes.
Main benefits of CAP are :
- vessel is judged on actual condition rather than on age
- used as a base for decisions of repair/investment for lifetime extension of the ship
- ensuring safest possible way of transporting cargo
