Shetland Islands Council (SIC) is the Harbour Authority responsible for the operation of a number of ports, harbours and pier facilities around the Shetland Islands. These include the large oil terminal at Sullom Voe, the port of Scalloway and many other marine facilities across the islands.

PMSC Audit

PMSC ‘Health Check’ Audit (municipal ports)

The Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC) applies to all UK harbour authorities; the Code aims to improve safety in ports and to enable authorities to manage their marine operations to a nationally agreed standard. As part of the Code there is a requirement for harbour authorities to seek an independent and systematic audit to ensure that the MSMS is being operated effectively.

Littlehampton Harbour is a small but busy port catering for yachting, fishing and larger commercial traffic; its jurisdiction covers the mouth of the River Arun to the historic town of Arundel.
