Think Safety First

At ESS Maritime health, safety & environment issues are at the forefront of all that we do.

Permanent Luxembourg Flagstate Endorsement

ESS has been endorsed by the Commisariat aux affaires maritimes (CAM, freely translated Comission for Martime Affairs) to operate on Luxembourg flagged vessels from the 11th of October 2013 onwards.

SAMI Stage 1 Accredited

Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) was an international organisation representing companies working in maritime security and related industries. ESS has successfully passed Stage 1 out of the three stages of SAMI Standard Private Maritime Security Company (PMSC) Certification Programme. SAMI has introduced this Programme to ensure that the maritime industry can easily identify reputable PMSCs.


ESS is BIMCO GUARDCON compliant. The BIMCO GUARDCON contract is a contractual benchmark for the employment of security services so that minimum levels of insurance cover for PMSCs are established and that adequate safeguards are put in place to ensure that liabilities and responsibilities are properly addressed and that all necessary permits and licenses are obtained.
