Port Facility Security Assessments (PFSAs) & Port Facility Security Plans (PFSPs)
After the 2001 terrorist attacks on the USA (9/11), the International Maritime Organization (IMO) created security guidelines for all vessels and seaports involved in International Trade, notably the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code.
The ISPS (Code) requires that all seaport facilities be certified after completing a Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA) and a Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP).
Security Administrators Limited is a Recognized Security Organization (RSO) appointed by the Government of Jamaica and is qualified to conduct Port Facility Security Assessments and Port Facility Security Plans. Our expertise in this area is evident by the fact that of the fourteen (14) seaports in Jamaica which have been certified to date, SAL conducted the assessments and/or prepared the plans for ten (10) of these facilities. In addition, we have also performed these services for several facilities throughout the Caribbean.
