Vartan specialises in risk management and quality standards

We are experts in health and safety, customs compliance, Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status, warehousing certifications and ISO standards.

Our team is formed of highly experienced consultants, each with a wealth of practical experience in their respective fields. Their knowledge and expertise are applied to each client’s specific situation to ensure that we provide sustainable and robust solutions.

We pride ourselves in our ability to guide companies through the complexities of risk management, qualifications and compliance

Based in Felixstowe, close to one of the largest ports in Europe, we are one of the leading consultancy companies in our field. Our client base is spread across the UK, with an increasing amount of projects being secured overseas.

Vartan was established in 2009 and is still privately owned and managed by its founder, Miles Vartan.

It could not have been easier once we contracted in Vartan to help us gain AEO accreditation. This was sorted with minimum impact on the day to day running of the office. Vartan started the process in January and we were AEO accredited by September. Job well done!
