FSMS1 : 2005 - Facility Security Management Systems Standard


ICS FSMS1 2005


The ISO 9001:2008 standard has been used as a basis for managing the security process. It does not however address all of the essential requirements of a sound security management system. The IMO ISPS Code has been written specifically for Port Facilities and Shipping and is not applicable to other vulnerable land based facilities.

Items not addressed in the ISO 9001 standard are information gathering on potential threats, identification of potential targets and vulnerable activities and facilities and subsequent risk assessment, security levels and when to change levels, testing of plans including security drills, security equipment and its testing and maintenance and measurement of performance.

It recognizes that whilst ISO 9001:2008 the current standard used for certification does cover many of the activities, it falls short in a number of specific areas, and further detailed requirements have been identified and incorporated in this standard that has been written specifically for organizations who need security management for their facilities.

This facility security management systems standard is based on the principles of the IMO ISPS code, ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:1999 standards.
