ICTSI’s Subic terminal ISPS compliant

International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI)’s New Container Terminal-1 (NCT-1), located in Subic Bay Freeport, was recently awarded a three-year certification for its compliance with the International Code for the Security of Ships and Port Facilities (ISPS).

NCT-1’s certification was issued by Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) under Cecilio Penilla, administrator of the office for transport security.

ISPS is a security regulation by the United Nations (UN)’s International Maritime Organization (IMO) established in 2004 to counter increasing terror threats in global maritime trade.

Aurelio C. Garcia, general manager of Subic Bay International Terminal Corp. (SBITC), operator of the NCT-1, said the ISPS clearance is an indication that the new terminal is ready for global trade as well as ensuring the safety and security of all containers stored in its terminal.

“As the new trading gateway in northern Philippines serving the industries of Subic, Clark and Tarlac economic zones, we are priming the NCT-1 to be at par with the world’s best practices in terminal operations,” he said.

“More than complying with the ISPS, the safety and security procedures and installations in place at the NCT-1 ensure the quality of our container handling services. We are bringing in ICTSI’s brand of expertise to the terminal, and we assure our customers, shipping line and consignee alike, that we are committed to give only the best service,” Garcia added.

Headquartered in the Philippines , ICTSI is on its 20th year of operation.(PNA)
