Is your PMSC still ISO 28007 Accredited are they still Financially Stable, are they cutting corners?
Through ASKETs unique position in the market we monitor many PMSCs across several fleets both ASKET Apporved Providers and others not approved by our team.
Our compliance team have observed several PMSC's who have struggled to remain financially stable and some that are taking risks in their procedures to remain competitive, this may effect legal compliance amongst other issues.
In recent times some have also lost or lapsed their ISO 28007 certification ( 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.
