The willingness to compare its procedures with the international standards led GIP Terminals, in the past, to a confrontation with the certification bodies, as a result of which they were recognised the compliance with OHSAS 18001 and ISO 9001 standards and later on 2009 with the Customs Agency ones for the AEO Full status (Authorised Economic Operator).

The Terminals also operate in accordance with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code), which represents a set of functional measures to maintain internationally recognised security standards.

Activities are carried out according to a set of rules, procedures and organisational protocols that, in response to the provisions of the mandatory legislation, generate a single Integrated Management System that allows the Group Companies to keep all processes under control, ensuring that:

• The service provided is able to meet all statutory and regulatory requirements and contractual requirements of its Customers;

• the identified risks are assessed with the aim of preventing and/or limiting threat events;

• sensitive aspects are identified and examined, with the aim of preventing and/or limiting the impacts.
