The international port of Casa de Campo – La Romana got its International Port Security Certificate after applying all provisions of the International Ships and Port Facilities Security Code (ISPS Code), issued by the Dominican Ports Authority on May 26th 2006 under the code DOLRM with OMI’s code DOLRM-0001.
Our Protection Plan has also been properly approved by the Port Security Specialty Corps (CESEP), the Dominican port authority designed to assure that all ISPS regulations have been fulfilled in the plan. These port facilities have an 8 feet high wire mesh along its perimeter security area along side the port to protect it from outsiders, considering we have two terminals: East Pier oriented for cruise passenger ships, West Pier oriented as an industrial terminal for cargo ships. Each terminal have two separate access entrances / exit points, properly checked by well trained personnel, to guarantee a much better access control to the terminal.
These two entrances are thought for operational vehicles: one of them for vehicles such as trucks and big or medium-size buses, the other one for guests and passengers and all kind of small vehicles such as cars. Every person and/or vehicle who wants to access to the port terminal needs to get previously authorized by the Port Operations Supervisor, then will leave a photo ID card to obtain a port visitor ID.
The Security Department has an average of 35 staff, working 24/7/365. East pier has twelve (12) security positions plus a mobile Security Supervisor; West pier has seven (7) security positions plus another mobile supervisor. We also provide security services to the Catalina Island when cruise ships calls there, with ten (10) security positions plus a mobile Security Supervisor. The PFSO supervises the whole operation.
The port facilities are totally illuminated in all its operational areas, including lights at the buoys and line / approaching lights, which allow the ships to make maneuvers any time a night, for both arrivals / departure operations. Terminal and all guests’ areas are illuminated too.
Our usual security level is MARSEC1: no accidents, stowaway nor critical threatens has occurred since now, our security personnel is highly trained and very professional; that’s why we are considered the most safe & secure Port Facilities in Dominican Republic, keeping this security quality standards in Catalina Island as anchorage point for cruise ships.
