The River Bann Navigation Acts and Order 1879 to 2010.


The role of the Harbour Commissioners is primarily as the Navigational Authority regulating marine operations within Coleraine Harbour from the Barmouth to the Millennium footbridge. It has an environmental duty to conserve and facilitate the safe use of the Habour and its resources. 

In addition it has the responsibility of implementing the Port Marine Safety Code.  Coleraine Harbour Commissioners as the Competent Harbour Authority and duty holder under the Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC), recognise a responsibility to publicly report on PMSC performance.  The main requirements of the Code are to carry out risk assessments for marine operations, implement a safety management system, employ properly qualified marine personnel, and ensure that sufficient powers and resources are provided to manage marine operations safely.

An external compliance audit is carried out on an annual basis on the Port’s Safety Management System by the designated person to ensure that the standards as detailed in the PMSC and associated guide to good practice are met.
