Security certification for DP World
DP World, UAE Region, has become the first port operator in the Middle East to successfully implement the Regional Security Management System standards and achieve its regional ISO 28000:2007 certification from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).
The certificate was awarded to DP World, UAE Region after LRQA assessors independently audited the security management system put in place by the regional port operator at its four facilities in the UAE: Jebel Ali Port, Mina Rashid, Mina Al Hamriya and Fujairah Container Terminal.
Jebel Ali Port earned its individual ISO 28000:2007 in 2007. The management system is applicable to all activities including container and cargo handling, storage, and transportation, vessel movement, cruise liner passenger disembarking and embarking, and passenger movement.
ISO 28000:2007 is the second internationally recognised accreditation achieved by DP World, UAE Region in recent months. In May Jebel Ali was awarded the United Nations Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) Certificate, which focuses on emergency response plans, security awareness for staff, security briefing for security personnel, and documentation procedures.
Mohammed Al Muallem, senior vice president and managing director of DP World, UAE Region, said: “We recognise the critical role we play in protecting and enhancing the supply chains of some of the world’s leading companies. DP World regards security as a baseline service and port users can be confident that we are committed to exceptionally high standards which have been internationally recognised and industry accredited. The twin achievements of UNDSS and ISO 28000:2007 in two months is a result of team work and high performance by DP World, UAE Region management and employees. We congratulate them.”
