The credibility of the Green Marine Europe certification process relies on external verification of participants' results.

Professional verifiers accredited by Green Marine Europe help to ensure that the certification process is rigorous and transparent.

Our certification process is rigorous and transparent. In order to obtain the Green Marine Europe certification, each company must agree to these external verification conditions:

  • The company must submit its results to third-party verification every two years by using a Green Marine Europe accredited verifier (see the list below)
  • The first verification is required within the first two years of joining the program.
  • The certification and the use of the «Green Marine Europe certified» logo are awarded only after successful verification of results.
  • Certificates are valid for two years from the date of verification.
  • The verification process includes on-site visits and verification of the company’s documented proof and justification in support of its self-evaluation.

All verifiers will receive training to understand Green Marine Europe’s evaluation, verification and certification process and proceed to the verification of participating companies according to Green Marine Europe’s standards.

Green Marine Europe accredited verifiers have been selected with the help of a third party based on the following criteria to ensure objectivity:

  • Sector experience – Experience with vessel operations, and/or with marine facilities
