Ethics & the Market Place
Sound Ethical Culture and Commitment to Best Practice
The Port of Dover is committed to best practice in corporate governance and has a number of governance practices and structures in place to reflect its commitment to the principle of openness, transparency and accountability, and ensure that the business is run in a responsible manner.
The governance arrangements for Trust Ports are identified first in the Government’s Trust Port review document 'Modernising Trust Ports (second edition)' (MTP2) revised guidance issued in August 2009 and secondly, the UK Corporate Governance Code wherever it is applicable. The principles contained in MTP2 complement those of the UK Corporate Governance Code, which is primarily intended for companies listed on the UK stock exchange. The Port of Dover also pays due regard to the corporate governance principles set out in the Institute of Directors 'Corporate Governance Guidance and Principles for Unlisted Companies in the UK'.
The Port is subject to national legislation, its own acts of Parliament and a variety of statutory instruments relating to the operation of ports.
The Port retains the internationally recognised OHSAS 18001 certification for occupational health and safety.
Committed to providing the best customer service based on core values, the Port conducts comprehensive customer surveys across its business streams. The Port of Dover Police force is focused on providing a safe and secure environment for the Port’s customers and delivering a responsive service to the community.
