PNTL vessels can only put to sea with permission from independent authorities on nuclear transport safety and security. They cannot sail with a nuclear cargo unilaterally.
The company operates within a very robust and mature regulatory system that extends from the United Nations’ bodies, the International Maritime Organisation and the International Atomic Energy Agency, to the individual national level regulators for nuclear transport security and safety.
This system ensures that the vessels are regularly inspected to ensure they are maintained and operated to the highest standard. They are among the safest ships to sail on the seas.
