The Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC) establishes the UK standards for every aspect of port marine safety and applies to any entity that operates any form of port or marine facility including those which do not otherwise have defined statutory powers and/or duties. Central to the Code is the development, operation and maintenance of a Marine Safety Management System (SMS) to minimise and manage risks associated with marine operations/activities.

To comply with the Code, a Designated Person must be appointed to provide independent assurance that the Marine SMS is compliant and working effectively.
