You are now entering upon private premises known as Portsmouth International Port, belonging to Portsmouth City Council. All persons while at the port are entirely at their own risk and shall comply with the directions of the Port Director.
Under regulation (EC) No 725/2004 on enhancing Ship and Port Facility Security you may be required, in the interests of public safety, to submit yourself, or your luggage and your vehicle to searching and you may be required to answer questions relating to any baggage, vehicle, cargo or stores intended for carriage by sea, or relating to your presence on the port, or in respect of the issue of or holding of a security pass. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in you being removed from the port and Portsmouth City Council will not accept any liability whatsoever arising out of any such refusal or removal or any action taken by it arising out of such searching or questioning.
A security Restricted Area, the access points to which are clearly marked, is in operation on these premises and entry thereto is restricted to bona-fide passengers and security pass holders. Unauthorised entry into the Restricted Area or remaining in any part of the Restricted Area after being requested to leave by the Port Director or anyone acting on his behalf will render you liable to prosecution under the Port Security Regulations 2009.
All goods, including vehicles, on or passing over these premises or deposited anywhere on the premises are entirely at owner's risk.
