We are now at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. For the latest COVID-19 updates for our customers, port users and the community click here.
Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) must comply with the Maritime Security Act (2004) which requires that access to the Port is restricted to authorised people with approved port-related business.
LPC must also comply with the International Ship and Port Security Code (security number 0014) which requires a number of regulations to be in place for the secure and efficient operation of the port.
We therefore ask you to adhere to the following rules and procedures to ensure your visit to the Port is a secure and safe one:
PORT ACCESS CARDS
Regular visitors to the Port may apply for a Port Access Card (PAC) which provides swipe card entry. Regular visitors are those frequent port users who enter for Port-related business at least once per month (or at least 12 times per year).
All PAC cards will require a passport style photo to be printed on the card. The PAC is valid for up to 2 years after which time a new application will need to be completed and a new ID photo supplied.
PAC cards cost $55 each (incl. gst) and are issued at the discretion of LPC.
Full terms and conditions for PAC holders are included with the Port Access Card (PAC) Application Form.
ACCIDENTS AND EMERGENCIES
Contact the SCC on VHF channel 12 or phone 03 328 7917 or Emergency Services on 111 where necessary.
Taxi operators must arrange to meet passengers outside the port boundaries.
STANDARDS AND CONDITIONS AGREEMENTS
Further information regarding security compliance for contractors and customers is contained in our Standard Conditions of Business.
