New maritime security partnership
Control Risks Group international maritime division has joined forces with PMSi (Port Maritime Security International) to offer a complete security solution throughout the logistics supply chain.
Whilst Control Risks' consultants will provide strategic assessment and advice on port and terminal security, PMSI, a subsidiary of Eurotunnel plc, will provide training on all aspects of security for Control Risks' maritime clients. A priority will be ensuring clients comply with the new international security regulations--the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code--which comes into force on July 1, 2004.
Les Chapman, Maritime Security Director at Control Risks says: "We selected PMSi as our partner because they have real knowledge and expertise gained through many years of managing security at the Channel Tunnel."
PMSi offers specific training for Ship (SSO), Company (CSO) and Port Facility (PFSO) Security Officers as well as a one day "acquaint" course to ensure all members of staff understand their security responsibilities under the ISPS Code. The company also offers full security assessments for ports and other facilities, designs security plans, provides advice on selection and deployment of security equipment
Chapman says: "We believe this partnership with PMSi will allow us to offer our clients a complete maritime security service and will ensure that they will receive the highest quality consultancy and training."
