ISO 28007 is widely known for providing the Requirements for Ships and Marine Technology for Private Maritime Security Companies. ISO 28007 was introduced to address the safety and legal implications of employing Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel (PCASP) on board ships through a risk-based approach. It provides guidelines and sector-specific requirements that PMSC, who already comply with ISO 28000, can implement to demonstrate that they provide appropriate PCASP services on board ships.  ISO 28007 builds on ISO 28000 to help you design and implement your maritime security management controls like deploying armed guards as well identifying the impact of your operation and how to prevent negative impact.

This five-day intensive course enables participants to develop the necessary expertise and knowledge to support an organization in implementing and Auditing maritime security management on board of a ship as specified in ISO 28007. Participants will also gain a thorough understanding of best practices used to appropriately manage risks in compliance with the requirements of ISO 28000. This standard specifies minimum requirements for effective private security response and provides the basis for command and control, operational information, coordination within an security incident response organization. ISO 28007 outlines global best practice for establishing command and control organizational structures and procedures, decision support, traceability and information management in preparedness and response to ship security incidences.
