The PSS Container Deck Operations “Vessel and Port Charter”, created with the agreement and cooperation of UK ports, outlines the safety commitments for all visiting shipping lines to UK waters. 

This plan represents a compact between water and land-based operations to ensure the safety and security of all workers involved in container work. 

The information is available in three formats: the A3 poster and A5 booklet contain the full charter and the handy credit card version includes the basic charter. These can be printed from download files below.
