Detail of outcome
Agreed to implement designation orders at ports where no issues where found, and continue engagement with respondents at ports (Barrow, Fowey, Oban, Peterhead, Plymouth and Troon) to resolve any technical problems raised.
We are seeking views on implementation of the Port Security Regulations 2009 (PDF, 130KB) at the following ports:
The Port Security Regulations 2009 transpose Directive 2005/65/EC (PDF, 385KB) in the UK.
Directive 2005/65/EC requires the:
- designation of a port security authority
- appointment of a port security officer
- completion of a port security risk assessment
- creation of a port security plan
The draft designation orders append plans outlining the area which the port security authority will cover.
