As a leading provider of Maritime security we are fully compliant with every relevant international standard and are often invited to consult and advise the issuing bodies on improving and evolving these standards. For example we were one of a handful of companies invited to pilot the ISO/PAS 28007 – the International Private Maritime Security Services standard. Our dedicated Quality Assurance Department ensures that we are continuously meeting and exceeding these hard won standards and re-qualify every 6 months to ensure our systems and procedures continue to lead the sector.



We hold an Open General Trade Control (OGTCL) – Anti-Piracy license, providing a legal framework for the provision of maritime security services and the transfer of ammunition between ports.
