    To ensure the safety of our operations in a preserved environment.

    Our principles

    We abide by five founding principles in the prevention of major accidents:

    • Prevention
    • Compliance with legislation in effect and controlling its application
    • Raising awareness and personnel training
    • Identification of risks
    • Continuous process improvement

    International Ship and Port Facility Security

    The ISPS code is the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code.

    The code is a comprehensive set of measures and procedures established to prevent unlawful acts (attack, terrorism, theft, illegal immigration, various trafficking, etc.) against people and goods, whether on board ships or in port facilities.

    Since 1st July 2004, the date it came into effect, CIM and CCMP are bound to apply the requirements of this code, as are all ports around the world; this includes appointing a Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) and the drawing up and implementation of a security plan.

    The latter is a confidential document in which the organisation, procedures and provisions for security are applied by the Terminal. It is drafted by the PFSO.

    Access to the facilities

    All CIM and CCMP establishments are subject to strictly controlled access to the facilities.


    Created in 1978, the governmental Vigipirate plan is a French security alert system that raises security levels in the event of threats of terrorist action.

    The current system has four increasing levels of alert: Yellow, Orange, Red and Scarlet. The Vigipirate alert, and its level, is announced by the Prime Minister.
