BV introduces digital certification portal for equipment manufacturers

Bureau Veritas has released a new digital platform to assist equipment manufacturers in gaining certification for their products, named Veristar Equipment.

The application allows manufacturers to request equipment surveys online, monitor the progress of the status of the certification process, and receive automatic calendar updates. Confirmation of certification is available, in addition to the usual certificate, via a web link or QR Code.

BV surveys to be carried out on-site can also be arranged within the platform, and documents can be uploaded through the portal to remove the need to send e-mails.

‘We have successfully introduced e-certification and online tools for our classification surveys and now with Veristar Equipment we are introducing a comparable level of efficiency, visibility, clarity and support for certification – with full transparency – in the equipment market,” said Laurent Hentges, Vice-President Operational Excellence, Bureau Veritas.
