Armed Guards

As from 3rd January 2013 any Private Maritime Security Company NOT accredited by Panama will NOT be able to work aboard Panamanian Flagged vessels.

Any previously signed contracts between owners/charterers and PMSC would not be able to be performed due to lack of accreditation. Depending on the terms of the contract, this may result in thousands of dollars of lost of business or litigation.

ISM Shipping Solutions can help as we were the first to obtain the necessary accreditation for a PMSC.

ISM Shipping Solutions has the expertise and experience to prepare all the documentation and to lodge it in Panama on your behalf so you can comply with the new legislation early and obtain business advantage.

If you need to discuss the new legislation and how it may affect you, we offer a no obligation assessment contact us by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

ISM Shipping Solutions Ltd can also help you obtain quickly and efficiently, the necessary licences that permit armed guards to be on-board Panamanian flagged vessels up to the end of December 2012
