Trade Agreement: CETA / WTO-AGP / CPTPP / CFTA / FTAs with Peru / Colombia / Panama / Korea Tendering Procedures: Qualified Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: This requirement is to establish a Supply Arrangement (SA) for the services, related to the statutory inspection and certification functions of Classification Societies which are approved by Transport Canada Marine Safety. Existing qualified Suppliers, who have been issued a Supply Arrangement, will not be required to submit a new arrangement. In order to promote an efficient marine transportation system and encourage the harmonization of marine practices, Transport Canada has entered into formal agreements with certain Classification Societies, under the authority of the Canada Shipping Act, 2001. These agreements cover the delegation of statutory inspection and certification functions. When a Classification Society enters into this agreement with Transport Canada, they are known under regulation as a Recognized Organization (RO). There are seven (7) Recognized Organizations for the purposes of vessel inspection and certification in Canada: American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Bureau Veritas ClassNK DNV GL Korean Register Lloyd's Register RINA Services, SpA Classification Societies already perform these functions on vessels around the world and have extensive expertise in the construction and operation of modern ships. Delegating inspection and certification functions to the Recognized Organizations allows Transport Canada to monitor the performance of both vessel operators and the Recognized Organizations through planned and unplanned visits to vessels to increase safety oversight. Transport Canada has developed a series of documents to govern the implementation and operation of the Delegated Statutory Inspection Program. The Delegated Statutory Inspection Program Policy outlines high-level requirements of the delegation program. Two Procedures explain the process for enrolling vessels in the Delegated Statutory Inspection Program and for monitoring vessels once they are enrolled. While every effort is made to resolve outstanding issues with vessel operators, violations of Transport Canada Regulations on vessels enrolled in the Delegated Statutory Inspection Program remain subject to the Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations or other enforcement action. This proposed Supply Arrangement will be for use by all Government of Canada Departments or Agencies including the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Coast Guard. The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Coast Guard are comprised of government operated ships used for non-commercial purposes and therefore are exempt from Canadian regulations however these organizations will also require similar classification society services. If any new Classification Society enters into a formal agreement with Transport Canada Marine Safety during the period of this proposed Supply Arrangement, then the new Recognized Organization will be eligible to receive entry into this Supply Arrangement upon their written request. Existing qualified Suppliers, who have been issued a Supply Arrangement, will not be required to submit a new arrangement. The Supply Arrangement Authority will send a copy of the Request for Supply Arrangement to the qualified supplier that does not have a Supply Arrangement. The period for awarding contracts under the Supply Arrangement will be from date of supply arrangement to 31 March 2023. Delivery Date: Above-mentioned The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement. Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
