NEW: Veristar Equipment adds Type Approval certificates
The latest updates to Veristar Equipment enable maritime equipment manufacturers to request Type Approval certificates and manage the display of their certificates on Approval Explorer.
Since the creation of Veristar Equipment, maritime equipment manufacturers have been able to streamline the process for planning and carrying out equipment surveys and manufacturer audits. Bureau Veritas’ digital application enables manufacturers to create and monitor requests in real time and track type approval reviews for their equipment. Veristar Equipment also gives equipment manufacturers a direct line to Bureau Veritas experts and access to an automatically updated calendar that provides an overview of survey and audit progress.
New Veristar Equipment updates
To further support equipment manufacturers and improve our digital efficiency, Bureau Veritas has unrolled several updates for 2021.
In addition to these updates, Veristar Equipment is now linked to Approval Explorer, a Bureau Veritas application that helps buyers identify BV-approved product manufacturers worldwide. With Veristar Equipment, users can determine how their Type Approval certificates are displayed on Approval Explorer, including the level of detail made available and certificate order.
So far, over 1,500 equipment manufacturers have already connected to Veristar Equipment, and more than 6,000 requests for inspection have been managed online.
Making certification simpler
As with all Bureau Veritas digital applications, Veristar Equipment is designed to simplify the daily activities of our partners and clients, and facilitate their interactions with Bureau Veritas. These updates enable manufacturers to digitally receive their Type Approval certificates, and benefit from faster, clearer, more collaborative survey request management and design review processes. With Veristar Equipment, clients now can build up a searchable database of information and exchanges, connect at anytime via phone or laptop, and track the certification process from end-to-end
