Tepe Savunma ve Güvenlik was authorized as a Recognized Security Organization (RSO) for ports and ships by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications of the Republic of Turkey (Undersecretariat of Maritime Affairs of the Prime Ministry) in 2004.

What is RSO?

"Recognized Security Organization for Ports and Ships" refers to this document, also known as the RSO Authorization Certificate. Tepe Defense and Security, the only company in Turkey with an RSO authorization certificate, meets the private security needs of ship and port operators.

What is ISPS?

The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS CODE) is authorized by the Maritime Security Committee and covers new measures to ensure the security of ships and port facilities as a result of the committee's work. It covers a set of security standards addressed at the international level. To ensure the rapid implementation of these security measures, the ISPS Code was added to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) in 1974. With the amendments made, the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code entered into force on July 1, 2004, accepted and implemented by signatory states.

Tepe Savunma, authorized by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure within the scope of ISO 28000, serves as a Recognized Security Organization (RSO) in Turkey, providing comprehensive RSO services for the implementation of the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) on Turkish-flagged ships and port facilities.

As a sector leader, Tepe Defense and Security has conducted security assessments for 100 port facilities and prepared security plans, issued International Ship Security Certificates (Maritime Certificates) for 94 ships, and continues to provide consultancy services for 65 port facilities under contract.
