On the 14th November 2013, Shield International Security, Korea’s leading Maritime Security Company, was awarded accreditation from Lloyds Register Quality Assurance for the International Standards Organisation (ISO) 28000:2007, Specification for Security Management System for the Supply Chain and ISO/PAS 28007:2012, Guidelines for Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSC) providing privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP) on board ships. 


The CEO of LRQA Korea said, "Shield International Security has obtained maritime security certification for the first time in South Korea through the strict and intensive assessment. This acquisition of ISO 28000 and ISO/PAS 28007 has served as a momentum of showing internationally high level of maritime security professionalism and has been able to provide clients with reliability and safety at the same time." 


ISO/PAS 28007, as part of the ISO 28000 family of security standards, gives established guidelines to private maritime security companies (PMSC) that supply privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP) on board ships. Certification to these standards demonstrates to the international community that they, and their operatives, can legally, safely and effectively guard shipping. 


Being the first Korean PMSC to achieve this level of certification, the CEO of Shield International Security stated, "We are very pleased to have met the requirements for both ISO 28000 and ISO/PAS 28007 in association with LRQA.  Our management system has been tested through this process and we have benefitted by ensuring our clients will continue to receive world class maritime security services.  We will continue to strive for continual improvement within our management system”.
