The MSIC (Maritime Security Identification Card) is a nationally recognised identification card which demonstrates that the holder of the MSIC has been cleared by the ACIC/ASIO (AusCheck) and is not a threat to the maritime or offshore industry.

The MSIC is not an access card. Access remains under the control of the port operator or offshore facility.

A standard MSIC is valid for either two or four years.

Fremantle Ports is an approved Issuing Body under the Maritime Transport and Offshore Facilities Security Regulations 2003 for the purpose of receiving, processing and printing MSICs.

There are three types of cards Fremantle Ports can issue. Click on the type below to learn more:

If you are already in possession of a valid MSIC and need access to Fremantle Ports Maritime Security Zones, a separate access card will be issued on application for access.

The MSIC and/or access card can be arranged through the MSIC Service Centre at Fremantle Ports administration building, 1 Cliff Street, Fremantle. Please select the appropriate link above for application requirements and booking an appointment.
