This document summarises responses to the consultation. It also features the department’s response to general issues raised by the consultation and explains the next steps to be taken.
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 and aim to enhance security coordination in the wider area at ports covered by the directive. This is as opposed to the immediate ship or port area which is covered by Regulation (EC) 725/2004 (PDF, 851KB).
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.
