Paul Fitzpatrick, P&O Ferrymasters’ General Manager for Risk and Compliance, said: “The project was launched as part of our expanding service offering and satisfies the need from a number of customers with flows from Belgium to Italy. We began by assessing the security risks and controls on these specific traffics.”

“Control measures were then identified and implemented, with training conducted both internally and with nominated carriers in each country, before our application was approved by TAPA.”

Applicants for TSR classification start at Level 3 and can progress to Level 2 and 1 as improvements are made. The level required is dictated by the cargo and the customer’s requirements. Subject to audit, P&O Ferrymasters’ TAPA certification is valid until November 2020.
