Port Pass card will be compulsory at Napier Port from Monday 5 October

From Monday 5 October, it will be compulsory for everyone on port to have a Port Pass card. In line with Maritime NZ compliance requirements, anyone accessing the port via the Western Gate or Eastern Gate must swipe their Port Pass card to enter and exit the port.

Following successful trials at both the Western and Eastern Gates, all port access infrastructure is now ready and will be fully operational on Monday 5 October.

Please be sure to pass on the following information to your employees and teams. A list of your current Port Pass card holders and any outstanding inductions or card collections has been sent to all company administrators today.

Seeking a Port Pass Exemption
A one-off only exception may be granted at the discretion of Napier Port. A port user wanting such an exemption must seek prior approval directly from the Port Pass team in order to access the port. The port user will still need to provide a valid form of ID to access Napier Port. 

Port Pass Card Collection
If you have not already done so, all port users must have completed their online H&S inductions at www.portpass.co.nz and picked up their Port Pass card.

Important note: Inductions completed prior to 21 October 2019 have now expired and must be updated with a Port Pass card.

Thank You
Thank you once again for your ongoing support of the Port Pass access system and the go-live process.

If you have any further questions or issues with the induction process please call the Port Pass Team on 06 833 4444 or email support@portpass.co.nz.
