Tundra Maritime Defense Services (MDS), has been certified by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) to ISO/PAS 28007, the Guidelines for Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSCs).

The certification, explains Tundra, gives established guidelines to private maritime security companies (PMSC) that supply privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP) on board ships. Certification to these standards demonstrates to the international community that Tundra MDS can legally, safely and effectively guard seafarers, their vessels and cargo.

Tundra MDS some time ago took the decision to use their own ‘in-house’ expertise to obtain a number of ISO Certifications. Mike Armstrong, Tundra Maritime’s Deputy MD and Quality Manager comments: “Gaining ISO certification is a strategic goal that we set ourselves and we decided to use our own internal expertise rather than bring in a team of external consultants. That way we could be sure that our procedures would be of genuine benefit to us as an organisation rather than just meeting the requirements. Everyone has been extremely satisfied with the results, including our customers, ships’ crews and our own security teams”.

The company adds that being now ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/PAS 28007:2012 certified, they continue to employ internationally recognised standards to all of its operations and are on track to obtain ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Certification very early in the New Year.
