Regs4ships Director, Captain Mark Capon, was recently published in the Port Technology International magazine where he spoke about the UK’s Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC).
"Managing the safety of marine operations (getting ships in and out of the port safely) in UK ports has improved since 2001 largely, in my view, because of the impact of the Port Marine Safety Code"
Captain Mark Capon
Throughout the article, Mark discusses the impact that the PMSC is having on the industry and how is has established a national standard that the authorities will expect all ports to operate at, regardless of their size.
Mark also talks about the formal risk-based safety management system (SMS), what makes a good SMS, the role of the designated person and the aide memoire published by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency.
