Neptune achieves certification to ISO/PAS 28007 with LRQA. The PAS, as part of the ISO 28000 family of security standards, gives established guidelines to private maritime security companies (PMSC) providing armed guards to ships. Certification to the standards demonstrates to clients and stakeholders that Neptune Maritime Security and its operatives can legally, safely and effectively guard their people, assets and reputation having undergone a rigorous and internationally recognised process.
The company has been heavily involved in the development of the PAS from the initial writing of the base document MPSC1, technical advice to the ISO as a member of BSI SME 32 and as an active member of the UK Government’s industry partner the Security in Complex Environments Group.
Carl Sykes, Neptune’s Managing Director said, “The award of this certificate is the result of several years of hard work by the company to establish regulations and accreditation processes in the maritime security industry. We are extremely pleased to become one of a handful of companies certificated to this level and it reflects the company’s belief in core competencies and a rigorous approach to vetting.”
