ABPmer has been appointed by Langstone Harbour Board to provide an independent Designated Person (DP) service and associated annual Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC) audit. The PMSC is the national standard for every aspect of port marine safety. A central requirement of the Code is that risk management processes are used to inform the implementation of a marine safety management system. The Code recommends the appointment of a DP to provide independent assurance directly to the ‘Duty Holder’ that the MSMS is working effectively and is compliant with the Code. Monty Smedley, head of maritime services at ABPmer, said; “We are delighted to be appointed as the new PMSC Designated Person by Langstone Harbour Board. We will shortly undertake a comprehensive review of their marine safety management system, associated procedures and risk register to provide reassurance that the Harbour Board is fully compliant with the Code.”
