Right after the beginning of BV’s journey, a steady growth of clientele as well as the revenue followed. The largest fleet of vessels in Bangladesh, owned and operated by Bangladesh Shipping Corporation, switched class to BV. Thereby, Marine became the mainstay revenue earner for BV Bangladesh.
There were almost no Certification and Industrial activities back in 2003. But as everywhere else in the world, BV in Bangladesh noticed a huge interest in the various industry segments about the various services that BV offers worldwide. As the service requests continued to grow, the Dhaka office was set up in 2006, with a full time Lead Auditor for ISO 9001:2000 Standard.
Today, BV Bangladesh has 2 Marine Surveyors, 3 full time auditors, 2 Industrial Surveyors and other office staffs and the two offices, one in Dhaka and the other in Chittagong, that are now destinations of many reputable business houses of Bangladesh.
BV Bangladesh is now equally equipped for 3 major services of BV – Marine, Industry and Certification. Apart from many inspections of machineries and industries for quality and quantity, BV is now engaged in conducting the Remaining Life Assessment for Eastern Refinery Ltd, in collaboration with BV Singapore. BV Industrial Surveyors are progressively trained to be able to take up any job that creates value for the clients and revenue for BV.
In the certification front, BV Bangladesh now certifies one-third of countries Power Generation, the whole of the country’s Power Transmission, and the major industries in some of the key sectors, i.e., Apparels, Ceramics, Ship-building, Engineering, and others.
In providing training, BV Bangladesh has earned an extra-ordinary reputation. BV Bangladesh is the only Certification Body today, having a qualified tutor for IRCA Certified courses on QMS, EMS and OHSAS. There are about 12 – 15 Lead Auditor courses that are conducted by BV Bangladesh on various standards every year. Some of the courses that BV offers in Bangladesh are only available from BV – e.g. LA course on Information Security Management System Standard ISO 27001:2005.
Various industries are now approaching BV for a range of HSE services. One of the major paint manufacturers of the country has got its management of flammable substances and chemicals audited by BV. Similar services are being requested by other business houses and in future HSE will become a major service counter for BV Bangladesh.
In the area of Laboratory Quality Management, BV Bangladesh today has competent staff for consultancy services provided to various laboratories, for accreditation to ISO 17025 and ISO 15189, for testing and calibration laboratories and medical laboratories, respectively. To keep away from conflict of interest, BV Bangladesh does not offer certification services to those laboratories for which it has conducted consultancy services for accreditation to ISO 17025 or ISO 15189.
The rapid rise of BV Bangladesh will truly be continued into the future and it will become a major service provider for conformity assessment of processes, projects, products and services in Bangladesh.
