IAMSP Membership Identified in Bahamas Bulletin 128

IAMSP is pleased to inform those seeking to practice or practicing within the realm of armed security on board vessels that its membership has been accepted as one of three named organizations that can be used to assist in the verificationof professional standing accepted by the Bahamas Maritime Authority. This recognition is based upon our support for the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers.

IAMSP commits to ensuring that the following three principles are maintained in this effort:

On watch in the Gulf of Aden / Indian Ocean

  • To maintain this status for as long as reasonable and for as long as it does not conflict with the principles defined in the Code of Practice;
  • To ensure that this status is not abused through overpricing its memberships for persons seeking to join the Association, maintaining our core principles that professionalism is based upon competence, compliance and conduct and not the ability to pay; and
  • To establish a clearly defined method for those members to both self-assess their level of adherence to the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers and to assist them in preparing for oversight activities (such as audits) that may result from the requirement to adhere to the written letter and principles of the Code.

For those that are seeking to meet this requirement and believe that they can achieve the highest professional standards, please feel free to contact us or visit the website for further details.
