Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on the implementation of the Port Security Regulations 2009 at the ports of Felixstowe, Harwich, Ipswich and Medway.

The purpose of Directive 2005/65/EC, which is implemented by the Port Security Regulations 2009 in the UK, is to enhance security coordination in the wider port area at those ports covered by the directive. This is as opposed to the immediate ship or port interface which is covered by Regulation (EC) 725/2004 on enhancing ship and port of facility security which is directly applicable in UK law. The directive requires the:

  • designation of a port security authority
  • appointment of a port security officer
  • conduct of a port security risk assessment
  • creation of a port security plan

The draft designation orders append plan(s) delineating the area which the port security authority will cover for the purposes of this directive.
