Port Safety and Local Notices


Bembridge Harbour Authority is committed to complying with the PMSC (Port Marine Safety Code) and operates a marine Safety Management System to ensure everybody can continue to use the Harbour safely.  An annual external PMSC Audit confirmed full compliance with the Code in January 2017.  If you have any safety concerns or recommendations please contact the Operations and Safety Manager.  Harbour stakeholders may apply to the Harbour Office to access the SMS and the records it generates.
