Port2Port Maritime has completed a pilot audit assessment for ISO/PAS 28007. After a rigorous and meticulously detailed, top down validation process conducted from the company headquarters to overseas operating locations and out to the point of embarkation, Port2Port Maritime has demonstrated compliance with this new management system specification.

ISO 28000 is based upon a management system for the delivery of risk management services and mirrors much of the process contained in ISO 9001.

The ISO Publically Available Specification (PAS) 28007, as part of the ISO 28000 Security Management System family, establishes the internationally recognized guidelines for Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSCs) providing private contracted armed security personnel (PCASP) on board ships. ISO/PAS 28007 is the only published International standard dealing with armed guards on ships. The document contains essential information for PMSCs and for the shipping companies selecting their service provider. It also outlines sector-specific requirements for applying ISO 28000:2007, Specification for security management systems for the supply chain, to PMSCs. Compliance with ISO/PAS 28007 is therefore acknowledged within certification to ISO 28000.

The document addresses security management system elements such as resilience, planning, resources, training and awareness, communication and documentation. It also outlines operational requirements for dealing with issues such as: scene and casualty management, incident reporting and investigation, health and safety and customer complaints. ISO/PAS 28007 also includes recommendations for performance evaluation such as monitoring, audits, management and continual improvement. Implementation will enable security companies to demonstrably evidence their competence in the provision of PCASP for anti-piracy operations on board ships.
