ICTS Albania set to expand operations to include maritime

6 October 2014

The Albanian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure has awarded ICTS Albania RSO (Recognised Security Organisation) status for the maritime sector. This award makes ICTS Albania the only security provider in Albania licensed to deliver maritime security services in line with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code of Practice.

“ICTS has been operational in Albania since 2005. Operations started at Tirana International Airport, providing all security related services to the airport. We have successfully retained this contract for over 9 years and have just recently renewed our Aviation Security Licence for a further 5 years. The team expanded further with the delivery of corporate security services to the hotel industry, and training services to airport staff and contractors. ICTS Albania has became the only organization certified to deliver courses in accordance with Albania’s Civil Aviation Authority’s (ACAA) National Aviation Security Training Programme.

We welcome this next move and expansion into the maritime sector, a sector we know well as a Group, in particular via operations in neighbouring Greece, through the work of ICTS Hellas” said Panagiotis Fistedis, General Manager, ICTS Albania.
