"IAMSP Logo"

    IAMSP is pleased to announce that ISSG Holdings has passed through the first phase of the Association's corporate vetting process. The first phase involves demonstrating (through documentation review, interview and observation) that the baseline requirements of the vetting process have all been met or are in the final phase integration.
    These commitments are based on three principles--quality assurance, values and ethics, and sound management. Quality Assurance is measured against the requirements of the International Organizations for Standardization (ISO), taking into account the specific operations of the company. The second criteria, values and ethics, are measured against the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers and supporting / parallel requirements. The third is based upon the requirements derived from the guidance provided by the IMO MSC 1/Circ 1405. Specific details regarding the standards used in the vetting are available by contacting the President of IAMSP.
    The first phase is considered completed when the company agrees to mapping out a two year commitment to continuous improvement--demonstrating its ongoing commitment to the requirements described in the vetting process. These commitments are broken down into six month benchmarks that are overseen by the Association, ensuring that the company maintains its commitments over time.
    This corporate vetting process reflects IAMSP's commitment to assisting the maritime industry in identifying organizations that have made significant and tangible commitments to sound practices within the maritime security domain. It also demonstrates our commitment to the maritime security industry to assist them in achieving and maintaining the highest of professional standards.
