Quality and safety are of paramount importance to Niels Winther and our clients. The company is therefore certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards and constantly strives to improve its quality, procedures and safety at work.
Additionally, in 2014 Niels Winther was successfully assessed by DNV GL to achieve the international health and safety accreditation OHSAS 18001:2007. This recognised standard ensures that Niels Winther and its suppliers work under the highest health and safety requirements, incorporating safety in every aspect of our operations.
In 2012 Niels Winther was certified as an Authorized Economic Operator under European Union regulations. The Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certification is granted to companies fulfilling the following criteria: customs compliance, appropriate record-keeping, financial solvency and, where relevant, appropriate security and safety standards.

Further to those quality, health & safety and accountability certificates, Niels Winther is a member of the "First Point of Assessment" (FPAL) supplier qualification system, working for the oil & gas industry. Being a registered supplier with FPAL allows oil & gas and increasingly offshore wind industry contractors to evaluate Niels Winther's track record, financial solvency and health and safety records. For further information, please check our FPAL supplier registration number: 10044319.
Niels Winther is therefore prepared to meet the demands of the shipping industry and our quality-orientated ship service operations have been assessed and approved by independent, official third parties.
