The Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC) was developed in response to the need for the safe and efficient running of ports, the first edition of the PMSC was released in 2000.

A thorough understanding of the Code allows marine managers and duty holders to structure and manage their operations in-line with industry best practice standards.

Effective implementation and adherence to the Code provides marine facilities owners and operators with a uniform set of principles, applicable to Ports, Harbours and other marine facilities regardless of their unique differences.
