NNPC Ltd reaffirms commitment to excellence, regulatory compliance….earns NIMASA certification

NNPC Ltd, Nigeria's state-owned oil company, has reiterated its dedication to continuous process improvement, regulatory compliance, and performance excellence.

This commitment was emphasized by Mr. Inuwa Danladi, NNPC Ltd's Executive Vice President of Business Services, during a recent event celebrating the company's certification of International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code Compliance.

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, according to a press release signed by Mr. Olufemi Soneye, Chief Corporate Communications Officer, 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 Center; 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 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. 

"This achievement is a testament to our consistent dedication, and we pledge to continue striving towards attaining regulatory excellence in all our operations," Inuwa noted.
