The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) was adopted on December 12, 2002, by the Conference of Contracting Governments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), through Resolution 2. This code, which is mandatory under Section A and recommended under Section B, is used for the security of port facilities. Our security policy, based on these provisions, is outlined below.

PETKIM Petrochemical Holding Inc.'s existing security policy is designed to ensure the safety of the port facility, as well as the factory area, warehouses, water and power centers, administrative and management buildings, employees, visitors, facilities, ships, and cargoes. Our policy encompasses an active and practical security management approach, including plans, procedures, and instructions, aimed at protecting relevant units and individuals from terrorist acts or other criminal activities.

In accordance with our port security policy, we carry out the following activities:
  • Ensuring all security responsibilities within the port facility are fully executed.
  • Regulating the entry and exit procedures of the port facility.
  • Monitoring the entire premises, including anchorage and berthing areas.
  • Maintaining surveillance over restricted areas to permit access only to authorized personnel.
  • Supervising the handling of cargo operations.
  • Conducting inspections of ship provisions handling.
  • Facilitating smooth security communication and cooperating with relevant authorities.
  • Implementing the aforementioned activities based on Security Levels 1, 2, and 3.
  • Taking necessary precautionary measures in the event of security breaches, bomb threats, suspicious packages, and similar situations before involving Local Law Enforcement Authorities.

  • Security Level 3: It comprises advanced protective security measures for a brief duration, even in situations where the exact target cannot be determined, in anticipation of or during a potential security incident.

Our port possesses the capability to implement security measures across all three levels.

  • The identification cards must have an approved photograph by the Local Administrative Authority.
