On Tuesday the 7th of June ESS Maritime has officially been accepted as the first non-UK member to the Security in Complex Environments Group (SCEG).

The Security in Complex Environment Group was established in 2011 and has been working to raise standards and regulation for the private security sector operating in complex environments, on both the land and maritime domain. It is a membership organization that acts on behalf of its members to encourage the adoption of appropriate international standards and regulations. As a result, SCEG has always expected high standards from its members and expects them to be fully compliant with international and national legislation, including trade laws and licenses. Furthermore, SCEG strongly advocates that private security companies have accredited certifications against appropriate international standards, such as the ISO 28007 for private maritime security companies.

Director of SCEG

Director of the Security in Complex Environments Group, Paul Gibson stated: “We are delighted that ESS Maritime has joined the Security in Complex Environments Group. We expect our members to operate to the highest professional standards and ESS Maritime has an excellent reputation for adopting and promoting standards across the sector. SCEG has worked with ESS Maritime over several years and it is therefore entirely appropriate that ESS Maritime is the first non UK company to join our organisation”.

Quality and dedication

ESS Maritime is the first and only Dutch company accredited against the ISO 28007 standard for private maritime security providers. The adoption of the highest possible standards and providing high quality maritime security services has always been a goal for ESS Maritime. ESS Maritime is therefore convinced that joining SCEG will only further this goals and looks forward to a fruitful cooperation.
