Nhava Sheva becomes India's first security certified terminal

DUBAI: Global marine terminal operator DP World's Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal(NSICT) in India,has become the country's first to
achieve ISO 28000:2007 certification in supply chain security management systems.

With the certification announced yesterday, the terminal also known as DP World Nhava Sheva has become the 15th among the giant operator's network of 48 terminals worldwide, to get the distinction.

The Certification, undertaken by independent Rotterdam-based Dutch auditing firm and Maritime Classification Society of excellence Det Norske Veritas(DNV), validates the NSICT's mechanisms and processes to address security vulnerabilities at strategic and operational levels, as well as its preparedness for preventive action plans.

The Nava Sheva terminal, which boast of state-of-the art infrastructure and world class services, is already certified for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 27001 management systems.

The terminal, was granted the certification after a thorough security audit of the facility, focused principally on container security, physical access controls, personnel security, procedural security, security training and threat awareness, business partner requirements and IT Security.

"Having an internationally recognised and certified security management system will greatly benefit DP World's customers and other terminal users and stakeholders who can now be assured that robust systems are in place to provide for the safety of their cargo and people using the terminal facilities in DP World Nhava Sheva," DP World Nhava Sheva's CEO, Capt Rustom Dastoor, said.

Its investment in the ISO security management system has been recognised by the US Customs Border Protection agency, which invited DP World to join its Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) programme.

I was searching online for examples of companies and institutions that went under certification of quality management systems when I got to this post. I personally believe that acquiring certification especially when done by an independent ISO 9001 registrar can standardize the quality of products and services and maintaining its high level.

I appreciate your post. I also wrote that SMS advertising provides a cost effective method of targeting promotions to specific customer profiles. You might want to remind customers of specific events or promotions, but for whatever reasons, SMS allows you to pass information directly to the right customer at very affordable prices and fast delivery.
