Since 1987, across more there 20 different countries around the world, the honorable Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors® (SAMS®) has sought to elevate the standards of the marine surveying profession and ensure the provision of superior maritime services worldwide. To assure this, all members are “expected to follow a course of continuing education to maintain their accreditation” as well as submit to a strict code of ethics; which is actually why membership can often be so difficult to achieve. However, with less than 1000 official members, this elite group is able to guarantee perpetual exceptionality and exclusivity, allowing all certified SAMS® members to truly stand out in their fields.
The Purpose of The Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors
