Why buy my Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC) at 1-Stop?
Save money when you buy your MSIC from 1-Stop. Our card is both an MSIC and an access card for Patrick, DP World and AAT terminals. Customers needing access to these terminals may have to buy an additional access card ($105) if they purchase an MSIC from one of our competitors. We offer both cards in one, for a flat rate of $238. Consider the cost difference, tally up the time savings and the choice is simple: the 1-Stop MSIC and access card is one card, for one flat fee, with one application process.
By using 1-Stop as your issuing body, you'll also enjoy the convenience of an online web facility where maritime industry participants can register and apply for a card. 1-Stop has partnered with Australia Post to ensure the required identity checks can be undertaken at any Australian Post office, Australia-wide. Using this network makes applying for the card easy and efficient.
What's an MSIC?
Legislation requires that any person needing unescorted access within a maritime security zone must display a Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC). The MSIC is a nationally recognised security identification card that shows that the person carrying the card has been cleared to enter and work in the secure area of a port, ship and other maritime facilities.
Applications for an MSIC must be done through an approved issuing body. 1-Stop Connections Pty Ltd (1-Stop) is one such body and was granted this status by the Department of Transport and Regional Services.
