Dublin Port Pass

All Port Workers, Visitors, Contractors who require access the Common User Areas MUST complete the Dublin Port Pass

 

Dublin Port Company (DPC) has introduced a new mandatory Health & Safety and security requirement called the Dublin Port Pass. A registration period commenced in June 2020 and ran until 12.00pm on Monday 28th September 2020.

Following this date and time it is now a mandatory requirement for all port employees, tenants, contractors and visitors who require access to the Common User Area’s in Dublin Port (see map), after which time Port Users must have successfully completed a two-step induction and access control process:

Step One

Successfully complete a Dublin Port Pass Induction course

Step Two

Apply for an Access Control Card

The Dublin Port Pass (DPP) induction courses have been designed as part of Dublin Port Company’s commitment to safety. A registration period commences from 12.00pm on Monday 29th June 2020. Port Users are required to complete the relevant Dublin Port Pass training module to access areas* within Dublin Port designated as restricted. On successful completion of the Dublin Port Pass you will be eligible to apply for a Dublin Port Access Control Card. This card will enable you access to the areas you have completed the induction for.

Existing Access Control Card Holders: Do not need to complete Step Two and will have their access updated automatically for the applicable area following successful completion of the online induction.
