Our Respect Management System (RMS) formalizes our Respect our Planet commitment by setting measurable objectives and targets for our business that we track and are held accountable to over time. Niagara City Cruises uses a third party to certify our business in the following International Standards:

The scope of our integrated health and safety, quality and environmental Respect Management System (RMS) includes all Niagara City Cruises operations and associated services conducted from the Niagara City Cruises’ Ticket Plaza, Lower Landing, Funicular, Vessels, Administration Offices, and Warehouse. It shall consider all activities and services that can present environmental aspects, health and safety risks, and quality concerns; compliance obligations that might appear from the needs and expectations of interested parties; and the external and internal issues, including environmental conditions, that might affect our operations.
