What is SS524:2014?
SS524:2014 covers the entire management system from product procurement to delivery of bunker to vessels within the port of Singapore. Its objective is to establish and provide benchmarks for the management of bunker supply chain to ensure that the quality of bunkers supplied to vessels conform to or is better than the standards set by the ISO8217 (petroleum products – fuels –class F- specifications of marine fuels). This scheme was implemented in 1st June 2003 and all bunker suppliers are given up to two years to achieve certification. Certification to SS524:2014 (Quality Management for Bunker Supply Chain) will have to be carried out by a certification body accredited by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) for bunker supply.
