Secure a Ship were swift to act, following the recent change of law in Panama under which from 3rd October 2012 all Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSCs) serving Panamanian ships must have official accreditation from the Panama Maritime Authority. Due to a lack of PMSC’s who got the accreditation Panama extended this to the 3rd January 2013.

Paul Maguire (Director) says “getting this accreditation early shows our strength and quality within the company, we welcome other PMSC’s into this exclusive fold. This also adds to our growing list of credentials of being ISO:28007, ISO18001, ISO14001 & ISO:9001 accredited, a certified Stage 1 member of SAMI and a member of SCEG”.
