We are delighted to announce that ANC's M/V Azteca and M/V Asturcon, both handy size bulk carriers, have been granted a renewal of their highly prestigious Qualship 21 certificates by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG).
Qualship 21 is a distinguished recognition program established by the USCG to acknowledge vessels that consistently demonstrate exceptional compliance with safety and environmental regulations. Vessels that qualify for the Qualship 21 program are considered to be of high quality and are granted various benefits, such as a reduced number of port state control inspections while calling at U.S. ports.
The renewal of Qualship 21 certificates for M/V Azteca and M/V Asturcon reaffirms their outstanding track record of adhering to the highest industry standards in safety and environmental practices. This achievement is a testament to ANC's unwavering commitment to excellence and their dedication to upholding the best practices in maritime operations.
As proud members of the Qualship 21 program, M/V Azteca and M/V Asturcon continue to set a benchmark for excellence within the maritime industry. Their consistent compliance with regulatory standards not only benefits Ariston but also contributes to the overall safety and sustainability of maritime activities in the regions they serve.

With these renewed certificates, Ariston further solidifies its position as a reputable and responsible player in the global shipping community, striving for the highest levels of safety and environmental performance.
