Secure a Ship became the first PMSC to be accredited with ISO28007-1:2015 certification.

The revised ISO28007 certification gives us a competitive edge against other PMSC’s and shows our dedication towards excellence. Certification gives us (and our customers, trading partners and other key stakeholders) confidence that we have addressed all external and internal issues relating to our company.

ISO PAS:28007 was published in 2012 due to rapid growth in the number of maritime security companies and the implications of using PCASP (legal issues, safety concerns for seafarers and varying national regulations).

ISO PAS:28007 gives guidelines containing additional sector-specific requirements, which PMSCs wishing to comply with ISO 28000 can implement to demonstrate that they provide appropriate PCASP services on board ships. Compliance to the ISO:28007 specification demonstrated by ISO 28000 certification.
