Belfast Harbour is a Trust Port and Northern Ireland's principal maritime gateway, handling around 24 million tonnes of goods each year. Belfast Harbour Commissioners (BHC) is the Statutory Harbour Authority, Local Lighthouse Authority and Competent Harbour Authority for the waters of Belfast Harbour Pilotage Area.

 As a Statutory Harbour Authority, Belfast Harbour has a clear emphasis on delivering safe marine operations, and assurance auditing forms an integral part of their safety management system.

 BHC appointed ABPmer as its Designated Person.

 The Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC), states that a ‘Designated Person’ must be appointed to provide independent assurance about the operations of the marine safety management system. This assurance is required by the Duty Holder, who is accountable for compliance with the Code.
