Nick Davis, CEO of GoAGT, receiving ISO/PAS 28007 certificate from David Derrick, LRQA’s UK Business Centre Manager.

Almost 50% of the shipping companies who took part in a maritime security survey carried out by GoAGT would only employ ISO/PAS 28007 certified companies.


 
The leading maritime security company, which achieved this certification earlier in March and received the certificate at a ceremony recently, surveyed its clients about the value of professional standards such as the forthcoming ISO/PAS 28007 in the decision to use a private maritime security company (PMSC).


 
Results indicated that nearly 50% of the organizations that responded think that ISO/PAS 28007 is an important factor when selecting a PMSC. The survey also indicated that quality of service ranked first amongst the key factors considered by shipping companies for selecting a PMSC, followed by reputation and price.


 
Gerry Northwood OBE, COO of GoAGT, said, “While it is quite right that price is still an important factor when selecting a PMSC, it is good to see the industry is complementing this with a focus on quality of service. ISO/PAS 28007 will become more relevant in the future as it can only guarantee a more professional and regulated industry base.”


 
He added, “International standards should be broadly adopted, especially at an EU level, where there are plenty of national regulations. With ISO/PAS 28007, we have an international standard and Flag States should recognize this in order to sift the good from the bad, and to reduce the cost to the shipping companies.”
