ISO 28007 was published in 2015 and replaces ISO/PAS 28007:2012 which was introduced 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 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.
Why is ISO 28007 certification important?
The supply chains of commerce are increasingly complex and vulnerable – particularly at sea. Providing assurance up and down the chain helps generate competitive edge and reduces reputational risk and costs. The security of seaborne trade underpins much international trade – particularly as emerging economies seek to exploit and export their materials. Let our business support you to provide that assurance of a reliable and ethical supply chain to your clients and partners.
The combination of ISO 28000 and ISO 28007 provides organisations and agencies with assurance that the highest level of performance is enshrined, with the main benefits being:
- Third party certification can provide confidence in your system
- It can also serve as a vehicle to reduce regulatory complexity within the sensitive area of maritime security
- Certification helps you actively manage the overall security risks.

The LRQA Difference
LRQA is the oldest established management system company and part of the only classification society, Lloyd’s Register operating in this sector. We launched our services to offer clients a truly global reach focusing services out of four principal locations: the UK, Singapore, Dubai and Piraeus in Greece. This geographical model means that in practice LRQA is able to provide fully qualified LRQA and Lloyd’s Register management system assessors with the expertise and knowledge of the sector to offer support and resource for organisations wherever they operate. To date, LRQA has already provided multiple certifications in the UK, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Korea and Greece.
In launching the service, it also became one of only three bodies to participate in the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) pilot scheme, a decision that is proving a key element in providing assurance in the external certification process.
