In recent months it has been reported that several PMSC's have lost their ISO 28007 ( Guidelines for Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSC) providing privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP) on board ships (and pro forma contract) accreditation previously awarded by the UK Accreditation and Certification bodies.
This could be due to various issues of non-compliance as some in the industry continue to struggle and so cut corners to stay afloat, it is therefore important that those Vessel Operators contracting PMSC's continue to conduct due diligence so as not to endanger their vessels or crews.
