Clearlake Shipping has developed its own vetting procedure to ensure that all tonnage controlled by the company, either through spot or time charter, has been screened and cleared to pass standards for vessel quality and international law. This procedure is conducted for every vessel and carried out jointly by Clearlake Shipping’s vetting and compliance teams.
Clearlake Shipping vets against an extensive checklist, which includes areas such as:
As an example, before any vessel can be fixed, as part of our due diligence, a sanctions screening process is undertaken to ensure that the vessel, its owners or management companies are not sanctioned or designated individuals by the United States, European Union, Singapore or any other relevant national authority.
We assigns the highest priority to preserving the health and safety of our people, customers and suppliers and any members of the public affected by our operations, while respecting the environment. We charter and operate modern vessels built to high international standards and oil majors’ acceptability.
