DNV Awards Saab Seaeye ISO 9001:2008 Accreditation

22 June 2009

Saab Seaeye, the world's largest electric ROV manufacturer, has been awarded the exclusive and stringent ISO 9001:2008 accreditation from Det Norske Veritas (DNV), a foundation established in 1864 to help safeguard life, property and the environment.

The enhanced DNV Risk Based Certification is awarded to only a select group of companies across the globe. It recognises that Saab Seaeye has verifiable, consistent and continually improving systems for management control, safety and quality.

To achieve certification, Det Norske Veritas say that an organisation must undergo a rigorous and comprehensive assessment to demonstrate that their processes and organisation meet defined standards of quality that instil trust and confidence in the company's customers and prospects.

For Saab Seaeye, DNV certification underpins their strategy for continued market growth and technological innovation across their internationally successful range of ROVs.

This range extends from compact and rapidly deployable systems, to powerful work-class vehicles. The ROVs are used across many market sectors including the oil and gas industry, defence, hydro and civil engineering, the emergency services, marine science and undersea tourism.

Saab Seaeye is the largest manufacturer of electrically operated ROVs. Its parent company, Saab Underwater Systems, is a world leader in sensor systems, precision engagement systems, and remotely operated and autonomous underwater vehicles.
