About Bureau Veritas Group
Founded in Antwerp in 1828, in what is today Belgium, the Information Office for Maritime Insurance had a simple mission: to give shipping underwriters up-to-date information on premiums in use at commercial centers and provide precise information on the state of ships and equipment. In 1829, the company was renamed Bureau Veritas, adopted the emblem of Truth as its official logo and published its first Register of some 10,000 ships. In 1833 the head office transferred from Antwerp to Paris, where a branch office was set up in 1830.
