Appoint ASBA Certified Agents

ASBA’s Landmark Certification Celebrates 10 Years

Since February of 2005, ASBA Agent Members have raised the QUALITY bar for agency companies operating in the United States and Canada by implementing a Certification Process.

Why Appoint an ASBA Certified Agent?

ASBA Agent Member Certification provides minimum standards for agency providers:

–  Annual Certified Public Account Procedural Review to certify that advanced funds are supported by detailed receipts and invoices and that separate files are kept by principal with supporting documentation.
–  Agent members attest that undisputed accounts are settled in accordance with the agent’s agreement with principals and/or vendors.
–  Adequate Insurance coverage meeting the minimum requirements for Automobile,
Workmen’s Compensation for USL&H as required, and General Liability of $1Million per event.
–  Member Employees are trained and professional
–  Member agrees that all issues regarding non-compliance are under the auspices of the ASBA Ethics and Grievance Committee and can face possible suspension of and/or expulsion from membership.

Certified Agent Members also meet the criteria for the Federation of National Associations of Ship Brokers & Agents’ Quality Standard (Internationally Recognized Standard)

ASBA’s Certification and FONASBA’s Quality Standard have been embraced by all major Owner’s Associations: BIMCO, INTERTANKO & INTERCARGO
