The certification was undertaken and awarded by TUV Rheinland Japan Limited.Mr Jack Williams senior vice president and MD of DP World’s Australia and New Zealand region said that “We are proud and pleased to be the only operator in Australia to receive this certification. We are committed to offering the best possible service to our customers and this international recognition of our security management system underlines to our customers that robust systems are in place to provide for the security of their cargo and of the people using the terminal facilities.”DP World regards security as a core service to its customers and is implementing the international standard throughout its network of 49 terminals.The ISO 28000 standard sets in place mechanisms and processes to address security vulnerabilities at strategic and operational levels, as well as establishing preventive action plans. The certification at each facility was granted after a stringent series of audits of each of the facilities, focused principally on container security, physical access controls, personnel security, procedural security, security training and threat awareness, business partner requirements and IT Security. The standard complements all international and national security legislative codes to which DP World already conforms to at its terminals.
