The Towing Vessel Inspection Bureau, or TVIB, is a non-profit, professional trade organization of marine auditors, surveyors and businesses formed in 2010. Our members provide marine audit and survey services to inland, coastal and ocean-going towing operators across the nation. It is our mission to provide world-class training and continuing education to ensure that TVIB-certified auditors and surveyors are the best in the marine auditing and surveying business. We work to develop and continuously improve the best possible audit and survey tools to empower our members to deliver a consistently high level of thorough, professional service.
The members of TVIB have collectively established a Code of Ethics to help uphold our high standards and use this Code to guide our actions and business decisions. TVIB provides all members with continuing education opportunities to ensure a consistent work product in the marine audit and survey field. TVIB works closely with the towing vessel industry, trade associations and regulatory agencies to ensure that the goals and processes of the organization remain aligned with the needs of each.
