Description / Abstract:

This Standard provides guidance for PMSCs to implement the ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012, Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations – Requirements with Guidance and/or the ISO 9001:2008, Quality management systems – Requirements or the ISO 28000:2007, Specification for security management systems for the supply chain standards. It provides the guidance for a Quality Assurance and Security Management System (QASMS) for Maritime Private Security Service Providers including Private Maritime Security Companies (collectively "PMSCs") to provide quality assurance in all security related activities and functions while demonstrating accountability to law and respect for human rights.

This Standard provides a framework for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving the management of their products and services. It is particularly applicable for any type of PMSC operating in a high risk environment at sea.

This Standard is applicable to any PMSC that needs to:

a) Establish, implement, maintain, and improve a QASMS;

b) Assess its conformity with its stated quality assurance and security management policy;

c) Demonstrate its ability to consistently provide services that meet client needs and are in conformance with applicable international, national, coastal and flag state, and local statutory and regulatory laws , as well as respect for human rights as articulated in the principles in the ICoC;

d) Provide a means whereby PMSC clients can conduct their own due diligence for the management of services retained from PMSCs;

e) Demonstrate conformity with the ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 and/or ISO 9001:2008 or ISO 28000:2007 by:

1) Making a self-determination and self-declaration;

2) Seeking confirmation of its conformance by parties having an interest in the organization (such as clients);

3) Seeking confirmation of its self-declaration by a party external to the organization; or

4) Seeking certification/registration of its QASMS by an independent and accredited external organization3.

The generic principles and requirements of the ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012, Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations - Requirements with Guidance and/or ISO 9001:2008, Quality management systems – Requirements or ISO 28000:2007, Specification for security management systems for the supply chain standards are intended to be incorporated into any organization's management system based on the PDCA model; it is not intended to promote a uniform approach to all organizations in all sectors. The design and implementation of quality assurance plans, procedures, and practices should take into account the particular requirements of each organization: its objectives, context, culture, structure, resources, operations, processes, products, and services.

3 Organizations seeking third-party certification must do so with a certification body accredited to the ISO/IEC 17021:2011 Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems and the ANSI/ASIS PSC.2--2012, Conformity Assessment and Auditing Management Systems for Quality of Private Security Company Operations.
