PAL Protect consultancy chosen as the only UK partner for Shore Certification

Anchor Group Services’ dedicated security consultancy division, PAL Protect is currently the only UK partner for SHORE Certification – an internationally recognised and acknowledged resilience certification programme for SAFE Hospitality, Offices, Retail and Exhibitions assets (SHORE).

Created by SAFE Asset group, the SHORE Accreditation is the only global solution for evaluating and certifying operational risk and resilience for individual assets and property portfolios. Their main goal is to create safe and sustainable assets while promoting safe environments and strong governance.

PAL Protect were chosen by the CEO of SAFE Asset Group, Erik Engstrand, due to their vast experience and excellent understanding of the UK market and the requirements of the industry, including the real estate market, as well as their impeccable credentials and reputation.

The certification comes at an exciting time for PAL Protect as they look to support the UK government in the ‘Protect Duty’ law which will scale up the UK preparedness for dealing with terror attacks for organisations operating within Publicly Accessible Locations.

As PAL Protect works closely with their clients in preparation, the SHORE accreditation will offer a real benefit in anticipation of the Protect Duty and the further requirements that the new legislation will place on businesses.

Ian Pugh, Director of PAL Protect, formally of intu plc. with over 38 years of security experience, commented:

“We are delighted to have been chosen by Erik and SAFE Asset Group to be the UK partner for delivery of the SHORE Certification. Whilst at intu, I was a member of the security committee for the European Council of Shopping Places, and I saw first-hand the value that the SHORE accreditation delivers to its clients and partners worldwide.

“At Anchor, we believe our experience of working in and delivering services to the UK real estate market places us in a unique position to make the SHORE Certification the accreditation of choice for UK Real Estate Asset owners and operators who want recognition and confirmation that their asset is SAFE for both their employees and the public.”

PAL Protect Consultancy look forward to this new partnership and meeting with UK businesses to present the benefits of being SHORE accredited – which include a boost in property value and a reduction in risk and insurance costs – as well as aligning with similar organisations across the globe.
