We were the pioneers of marine fuel testing in 1981 and very quickly became established as a world-leading partner to the maritime industry. Before the International Marine Fuel Testing Standard, ISO 8217, was introduced in 1987, we were already global-leaders in marine fuel quality testing.      

From the introduction of IMO MARPOL Annex VI in 2005, environmental legislation aimed and reducing SOx, NOx and Particulate-Matter emissions, has driven many developments in marine fuels and lubricants, with our innovations providing valued-solutions to the world’s shipping fleet.

To achieve a sustainable shipping industry, attention is now focused on reducing CO2 and Green-House-Gas emissions over the next 30 years and we are at the forefront in testing & advisory support of the maritime sector to achieve these goals.
