Application of the Port Marine Safety Code

The Port Marine Safety Code ('the Code')sets out a national standard for every aspect of port marine safety. 

The Code is endorsed by the UK Government and is applicable to harbour authorities and to operators of other marine facilities who may not have statutory powers and duties. The UK Government expects that harbour authorities and operators of marine facilities develop and implement safety management systems to ensure proportionate compliance with the Code.

Lymington Harbour Commission (LHC) sets out its comprehensive policies and procedures for managing safety in compliance with the  Code in its Marine Safety Management Plan and Safety Management System.

In line with the recommendations of the Code, LHC policy appoints an independent ‘Designated Person’ to undertake a formal annual audit (April) of LHC's compliance with the Code.  LHC currently contract ABPmer (Marine Consultancy) to provided 'Designated Person' services. Montgomery Smedley (Principle Marine Consultant- ABPmer) will act in the capacity of Designated Person.
