Wales’ largest port, Milford Haven covers over 70 miles of coastline, and is a strategically important UK energy hub, capable of delivering 30% of the UK’s gas demand.

The Port of Milford Haven is a Trust port, responsible for the safe, efficient movement of all vessels within its jurisdiction. This includes deep-water oil and gas terminals, Pembroke Port and Milford Dock and Marina.

As the Statutory Harbour Authority, the Milford Haven Port Authority recognises that marine safety management is critical to its ongoing success and development.

The PMSC is the national standard for every aspect of port marine safety. A central requirement of the Code is that risk management processes are used to inform the implementation of a marine safety management system (MSMS). The Code recommends the appointment of a Designated Person to provide independent assurance to the Duty Holder that the MSMS is working effectively and is compliant with the Code.

ABPmer is the Designated Person for Milford Haven, regularly undertaking a review of measures and providing assurance that the Port’s MSMS is working effectively.

Our experienced Designated Persons provide independent assurance of marine safety management systems and impartial advice on matters of safety. Learn more about our DP services.
