Security and Emergency Preparedness
CCB must adhere to the following statutory requirements and industry demands for security and emergency response:
- Regulation of security in ports and port facilities (the ISPS regulation)
- Regulation and guidelines on Civil Defence
- NOG Guideline 091 – recommended guidelines to secure supplies and material within the oil- and gas industry
CCB Security and Emergency Preparedness is organized as a staff function, headed by the Security Manager, who is in charge of the Civil Defence on the base. He is also Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) according to the ISPS Code and national regulations.
CCB's Civil Defence consists of approximately 55 persons within the following diciplines:
- Fire fighting force
- First aid
- Auxiliary policing
- Oil and chemical spill response
The Civil Defence Group is equipped according to risk assessment and performs exercises and drills every month except the summer months July and August. We have two defibrillators and 19 "operators" are trained every year how to use these.
The defibrillators are located in the Civil Defence depot (VE11), reception in KO08, KO21 and CCB's Warehouse in LA04.
The Norwegian Industrial Safety Organization supervises compliance of the requirements in the regulations (§ 21 in the regulations).

Security and guard service
CCB's security concept comprises physical security measures against crime. The guard service is performed by a guard company authorized by the authorities.
The Security Manager administrates entrance- and parking permits, access control and locking systems and keys to all building on CCB. The Security Manager is assisted by the Security Coordinator in the management of lock and keys.

ISPS and Port Security
CCB is an ISPS port with IMO no. NOAGO-0001.
ISPS areas are fenced in and duly marked with signs, and only authorized personnel have access. Everybody present inside the ISPS areas shall have a red entry card issued by CCB. Ship crews shall use ID cards issued by the shipping company.
ISPS on CCB is handled as described in the Port Security Manual approved by The Norwegian Coastal Administration. The distribution of this manual is limited according to the ISPS code and Norwegian regulations.
CCB's Operations Duty Officer is acting PFSO outside normal working hours.
We combine ISPS and security according to the NOG guideline 091 by taking up topics common between the two in exercises.
