New Orleans headquartered Bisso Marine has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification of its Quality Management System.

Bisso Marine received the ISO 9001:2008 certification after being assessed by ABS Quality Evaluations, Inc. The certification is the first piece of an expanding certification program for the company.
The Bisso Marine scope of certification includes dive services, heavy lift services and additional support activities for the river, inshore, offshore and international operations relating to construction, salvage, diving, heavy lift, survey and transportation.
"The ABS ISO 9001:2008 certification is a very important step for Bisso Marine. We strive daily to achieve the highest possible standards with safety being our top standards priority," said President and Chief Executive Officer W.A. "Beau" Bisso IV.
