In 2004 Dia.Vi.Pe.Thi.V. S.A. applied the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS CODE) for Thisvi Industrial Area Port Facilities. Certified organisations evaluated Thisvi Port Facilities and prepared a Port Facility Security Plan, which was approved by the Greek Authorities. The Port Facility Security Plan of the company, entitled Administration and Management Thisvi Viotia Industrial Area S.A., was prepared according to the provisions of Chapter IX-2 of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and part A’ of the International Ship and Port Facilities Security Code (ISPS Code). Moreover, were taken into account the advisory provisions of part B’ of the Code, the provisions of EC Regulation 725/2004 / 31.3.04 of the European Parliament and those of the Council of European Union, the 2005 / 65 European Directive and the law 3622/07, which incorporated the above in national law, as well as relevant circulars of Ministry of Development issued occasionally. The Plan has been revised with the E732 / 14 document of Coast Guard Headquarters - Greek Coast Guard, Ministry of Shipping and Island Policy.
The Plan is designed to protect port facilities and ships using them, workers of the port and the ships’ crews, visitors and passengers, goods, cargo handling equipment and vehicles from any malicious action. The Plan also describes the means used to achieve this objective, as well as the number of people needed along with the appropriate infrastructure, as well as the procedures and the security organization of the installation.
