We comply with the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) requirements for the security of port facilities, ISPS (see SOLAS chap. XI-2, Parts A and B of the ISPS Code and Executive Order No. 414 of 8 May 2012 on the security of port facilities). 

Vesthavn is a permanent ISPS area and, in addition, we have the possibility to establish four more areas as ISPS areas. 

Access to Vesthavn and Quay 11 is controlled by fences, CCTV and a barrier system. Only authorised persons are allowed in the ISPS secure areas. Persons with valid access use a scanner or keypad themselves. 
Other guests, suppliers, etc. to ships calling at the port and to companies in the port can gain access by contacting port security in the Blåtårn (Blue Tower).
