Naviris gains ISO and AQAP certifications
A further step towards the development of the jv Fincantieri and Naval Group
Naviris, the 50/50 owned joint-venture by Fincantieri and Naval Group was officially awarded in January 2021 the ISO 9001:2015 and AQAP 2110 (NATO complementary regulation for major defense contractors) certification by Lloyd’s Register. These certifications are a further step towards the development of the joint venture, whose purpose is to manage export and cooperation programs for surface ship as well as naval R&D projects.
It was essential for Naviris to build a high standard Organization and Quality Management system to manage such complex and strategic projects.
This is now the case since Naviris in Genoa and its fully owned subsidiary Naviris France in Ollioules were awarded the ISO 9001:2015 and AQAP 2110 certifications by Lloyd’s Register both in Italy and France.
The Organization and Quality Management system is already fully operative on the two contracts granted by the OCCAR:
in June 2020, the R&T contract with the five Research tracks requested by France and Italy
in July 2020, the Mid-Life Upgrade feasibility study for Horizon class frigate.One of the important next steps for Naviris will be to contribute to new European projects. Naviris will be involved in the ambitious EPC European Patrol Corvette project in particular, as EU countries work together to build an innovative and modular design for the next decades. The project benefits from the effective support of European Commission through the European Defense Fund (EDF).
Naviris is a 50/50 owned joint-venture by Fincantieri and Naval Group, officially launched in January 2020. With this alliance bringing new opportunities to the surface ship market, both companies have cemented their joint desire to build a future of excellence for the shipbuilding industry and navies. The two European references with complementary offers, supported by a large ecosystem, came together to better serve the world’s navies and mutually increase their competitive edge. They are materialising their shared worldwide ambition: the alliance is based on a mutual understanding of the challenges and realities of naval defence in the world of today. Naviris is dedicated to opening the doors to the international markets of tomorrow.
