Monthly Internal Audit process 2017

BST’s internal audit process has thus far been very productive. According to the audit plan for 2017, and the internal audit procedure of Black Sea Terminal, monthly internal audits have already been undertaken in the Transport & Machinery and the HSE/Security Departments.


Audit teams prepared and issued their reports, providing the corresponding findings, comments and recommendation for improvements, and presented them to management for review. In addition, the audit findings were recorded in the corresponding logs for further review at Action Tracking Meetings.


The internal audit teams consist of certified BST employees. The main goal of the audit process is to analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of terminal processes, and to check for compliance against the applied international standards.


The audit teams are responsible for verifying the compliance of company processes with the requirements of international standards OHSAS 18001:2007 and the transition to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. Recommendations received during the internal audit process will be considered by each department, and the issues raised will be resolved accordingly.


The Integrated Management System of Black Sea Terminal was certified by Moody International, a UKAS accredited certification body in 2008, after six months of operation. Since then, the terminal has passed one certification, two re-certifications and five surveillance audits. Another audit will be conducted next year.
