Port Marine Safety Code


The UK Department of the Environment Transport and the Regions (DETR) has released the Port Marine Safety Code. The Code introduces a national standard for every aspect of port marine safety. It aims to improve safety for those who use or work in ports, their ships, passengers and cargoes, and the environment. The Code includes a summary of the legal duties and powers of harbour authorities relating to marine safety.

It is divided into two main parts. The first summarizes the general duties and powers resting upon harbour undertakings in relation to marine operations in their waters, including the procedures for revising their powers to make them fully fit for purpose. The second part outlines the measures which harbour authorities must adopt to fulfill their duties in accordance with the agreed national standard.

The Code is intended to apply to all harbour authorities, to the extent that they have duties and powers relating to marine safety. It applies to port marine operations the well-established principles of risk assessment and safety management systems. Harbour authorities must apply these principles if they are to discharge their legal duties and statutory powers to the national standard that the Code establishes.
