A&P Ready for ISPS

Thursday, July 01, 2004
The A&P Group has announced that all its facilities are now certificated under the ISPS Code, which was introduced to bring shiprepair and shipbuilding yards up to the same level of certified security as ports and terminals. Facilities include shipyards at Wallsend, Hebburn, Aberdeen, Teesside, Chatham Dover, Ramsgate, Southampton, Falmouth and Birkenhead.

A&P has a history of operating under secure conditions and welcomes this move to formalise a system throughout the Group. To conform to the ISPS Code, the process has involved appointment and training of Port Facility Security officers, submitting and approval of security plans to the authorities and audits of the various sites (yards).

A&P also intend to work closely with Company and Ships security officers to ensure that all security requirements are adhered to and maintained.
