Port Security

Security Measures to avert Danger

Extensive security measures apply to ships and port facilities worldwide. They have been drawn up by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to improve maritime danger security. The so-called ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) applies, a. o., to cargo ships with a tonnage of 500 gt or more and passenger ships on international voyages as well as to port facilities where the mentioned ships are handled.

Niedersachsen Ports has over 18 ISPS-certified port facilities in its ports of Brake, Cuxhaven, Emden and Wilhelmshaven and provides at least one Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) for each port. With this certification, an international transport of goods through our ports is possible.

Our investments in security measures serve not only to prevent dangers but also to secure our customers' goods.

Thereby, Niedersachsen Ports fulfils all requirements for safe port handling with simultaneous minimum interference of the customers by security regulations.

Do you have questions about ISPS or do you need a port identification card? Our PFSO colleagues will be happy to help you.
