Sea Marshals Gains New Armed Guard Insurance

Press Release
Thursday, March 29, 2012

International maritime security specialist Sea Marshals Limited announced that it has gained insurance which complies with BIMCO’s new Guardcon standards.
 
Launched this week, BIMCO’s Guardcon provides an industry standard contract for the employment of security guards on ships. In particular, it addresses concerns over the relationship between the Master and the Head of the Security team on board a vessel.
 
The company signed documents for the policy at the end of last week to ensure that it was already in compliance with Guardcon before its industry launch.
 
“Sea Marshals has worked hard to make sure we comply with Guardcon,” said Thomas Jakobsson, Chief of Operations for Sea Marshals. “Guardcon gives the whole industry a standard contract when using guards onboard ships. It specifies many things that a security provider has to live up to and has set a minimum standard for insurance. This ‘minimum standard’ is much higher than most security providers  currently offer. But we are pleased to have secured insurance to make sure that we comply with all the regulations in the new Guardcon contract from the very first day.”
