Marine Surveyors, Compass Adjusters Brisbane, Australia

The company was established in Brisbane in 1917, and since then has provided general and specific Marine Surveying and Advisory Services of high quality and integrity to the Shipping Industry.

We are well acquainted with all aspects of the safe carriage of General, Heavy Lift, Containerised, Refrigerated and Dry Bulk Cargoes and the associated stevedoring practices. We have extensive experience of the Bulk Oil, Chemical, Liquid Component Trades.

We are Preferred Surveyors to a number of P & I Clubs and Hull and Machinery Underwriters and their correspondents; we regularly carry out work for them through their various legal representatives and agents in Australia and occasionally the South West Pacific Region.

As professional seamen, we have the qualifications and accumulated experience to investigate all manner of marine incidents and, from time to time, are called upon to provide technical advice on matters where litigation is pending or threatened.

The Company regularly undertakes consultative work for Port Authorities, Shipping Companies and the Oil and Mining Industries, as well as providing ISM advice and Audit services to the Marine Industry.

The Company is Quality Endorsed to ISO 9001 by SAI Global.  Our Policy and Quality Management System precludes the use of subcontractors (except under clearly defined guidelines with prior client approval), therefore guaranteeing competent, professional representation at all times.

The Company is an ISNetworld Compliant Contractor / Member for Oil Majors.

We are members of AIMS (Australasian Institute of Marine Surveyors).

Currently there are six (6) Surveyors in the company.  Brief details of their qualifications and experience are appended.

It is the policy of the Company to comprehensively train and mentor Surveyors and prospective partners.  This is achieved by a formal ‘in-house’ program, supplemented by attendance at the Australian Maritime College or other training organisations as required.  The program is audited annually by SAI Global as part of the Quality Management System.
