App helps operators find certified suppliers and manufacturers

Approval Explorer is a free, responsive and user-friendly web application that helps ship operators and ship designers identify, locate and contact Bureau Veritas-certified service suppliers or manufacturers, as well as type approved equipment and materials, all around the world. A map display makes it easy to find the nearest service suppliers when arriving at a port.


Users can combine keywords through the app’s powerful search engine to quickly find the appropriate results. Those results can be further refined through advanced filters.

With manufacturer and supplier approval, authenticated users can download a full certificate copy, making it possible to search inside the certificate itself for more accurate results.
