Maritime security company Ambrey Risk, specialists in commercial shipping in the oil and gas sector inform it has now been formally awarded full certification & accreditation for ISO 28000: ISO/PAS 28007, following Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) being appointed as a ‘Certifying Body’ (CB) against ISO/PAS 28007 by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS).

This concludes the ISO/PAS 28007 Pilot, the first assessment of a maritime security company’s quality management system against an International Standards Organisation framework (ISO). Ambrey is at the forefront of a growing select pool of private maritime security providers – ISO/PAS 28007 compliant - able to demonstrate strict adherence to this international standard in the delivery of its risk management services.

John Thompson, Managing Director (UK), Ambrey Risk said, “Ambrey views the ISO/PAS 28007 as a key differentiator within the private security sector. Independently assessed against this ISO, we remain fully accountable to our clients in managing their risks in challenging environments.”
 
He concluded, “This official recognition adds to Ambrey’s recent accreditation from Manipal City & Guilds as the only Maritime Security Training company to deliver Maritime Security Operative (MSO) 8269 - 03 courses in India. Our current and future clients should be confident in choosing a security provider who offers integrity, parity of training standards across our MSO’s and the very highest standards of compliance and peace of mind, at attractive commercial terms.”

The company explains that SO/PAS 28007, as part of the ISO 28000 family of security standards, gives established guidelines to private maritime security companies (PMSCs) that supply privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP) on board ships. Certification to these standards demonstrates to the international community that they, and their operatives, can legally, safely and effectively guard shipping.

About the Company

Ambrey Risk, based in Hereford, England, is one of the leading maritime security companies globally specialising in commercial shipping and the oil and gas sector. The company employs over 60 full-time staff, has more than 200 deployed personnel at any one time and retains around 400 security personnel vetted and available for deployment.
