Vakinn is a new quality- and environmental system that came into effect in 2012. It is a product of increased demand for a standardized quality system suitable for all branches of tourism in Iceland. The work behind it begun in 2008 when the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism assigned the Icelandic Tourist Board and the Innovation Centre Iceland the project. It builds a lot on Qualmark, New Zealand tourism’s official mark of quality assurance, but has been adjusted and localized for Icelandic circumstances.

It is meant to increase safety and strengthen quality and professionalism in the field of tourism.

First recipiants of Vakinn Envirp are Elding Whale Watching Center, IcelandExcursions, Bílaleiga (Car-rental) Akureyrar - Höldur.
