The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sports advises that updated templates for Port Security Plans for 2019-2024 have been made available.

The Port Facility Security Plan template should be used for ‘Article 2.4 Single Facility’ ports where an approved assessment confirms that the boundaries of the port and the facility are the same; and individual port facilities within multi-facility ports.

A separate ‘combined’ Port Security Plan template is for single facility ports where Article 2.4 of EU Directive 2005/65/EC does not apply and which includes the requirements of that directive as well as EU Regulation 725/2004/EC.

The additional ‘over-arching’ template is only intended for use by multi-facility ports.
