The NNPC Limited has reaffirmed its commitment to sustaining regulatory compliance, performance excellence and process improvement.

The Executive Vice President, Business Services of the NNPCL, Inuwa Danladi made this known in a statement on Sunday.

The statement, signed by Olufemi Soneye, the Chief Corporate Communications Officer of the company, added that Danladi spoke on the recent certification of the International Ship and Port Facility Security, ISPS, Code Compliance obtained from the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA.

The Executive Vice President said: "This achievement is a testament to our consistent dedication, and we pledge to continue striving towards attaining regulatory excellence in all our operations."

He further highlighted processes in obtaining the certification, including the upgrade of security facilities at the ports among others.

The statement partly reads: "The ISPS certification, issued in April 2024 and covering all NNPC jetties nationwide, is crucial for the Company's business continuity as it prevents potential operational disruptions and financial losses.

"Beyond demonstrating NNPC's continuous adherence to regulatory compliance, Inuwa said the certification also grants the Company entry into the Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS), enhancing its reputation as a safe and reliable business destination and potentially reducing the company's insurance premiums.

"Inuwa listed some of the rigorous processes followed in obtaining the certification to include the upgrading of relevant security facilities at the nation's ports and jetties; the establishment of the ISPS Code Command Centre; as well as the engagement of NIMASA Recognized Security Officer (RSO), who played a crucial role in managing key regulatory processes.

"Inuwa added that the development of the Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA) & Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP), coupled with the meticulous Verification Inspection Exercise (VIE) from NIMASA, have also underscored NNPC's commitment to ensuring adherence to the highest standards of maritime security in the Company's operations."
