ABP Port Rules

In order to maintain health, security, order and safety at ABP’s ports, it is a condition of entry that Port Rules are complied with.

When you enter an ABP port you are agreeing to abide by these Rules. If any person becomes aware of any breach of these Rules, they should in the interests of health, safety and security report the breach to ABP. Where ABP becomes aware of any person failing to comply with these Rules, ABP has the right to refuse access to the Port and/or to remove such person/vehicle/vessel from the Port. Any continued or serious breach of these Rules may result in future access being denied whether a formal ban has been served or not.

The Port Rules, last updated in November 2016, can be viewed here: ABP Port Rules 2016.
