SAFETY & SECURITY.
Safety and security are paramount at the Montserrat Port Authority (MPA).
The MPA is an International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code compliant facility. The ISPS Code which is formulated and administered by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) provides a framework through which ships and port facilities can co-operate to detect and deter acts which pose a threat to maritime security.
The security measures in place are applicable to all vessels which are subject to the ISPS Code as well as port users.
The Security Services Department which is led by the Port Facilities Security Officer (PFSO) is responsible for ensuring a secure and safe environment on a twenty-four-hour basis.
