Accreditation and Regulation

Regulatory compliance has become an increasingly important part of day-to-day shipping operations. Owners and vessel managers now have to be accredited in a wide range of areas – and failure to meet international standards means lost time, detained vessels, and loss of earnings. Masterbulk, as an owner and a ship manager, understands the importance of independent accreditation and verification. Masterbulk and Masterbulk Ship Management have met the following standards:

  • Memberships of INTERMANGER, Intercargo, and BIMCO.
  • Participation in shipping-kpi.org
  • In early 2015 Masterbulk joined as a member of the Marine Anti Corruption Network (MACN).

We provide our clients with a commitment to manage all vessels to the same standards.
