Maritime Security

What is the ISPS Code?
The ISPS Code provides a framework through which ships and port facilities can co-operate to detect and deter acts which pose a threat to maritime security. The ISPS Code enables the detection and deterrence of security threats within an international framework, establishes roles and responsibilities, enables collection and exchange of security information, provides a methodology for assessing security and ensures that adequate security measures in place.

It requires ship and port facility staff to gather and assess information, maintain communication protocols, restrict access, prevent the introduction of unauthorised weapons, etc. , provide the means to raise alarms and put in place vessel and port security plans and ensure training and drills are conducted.

What are the benefits ?
We can provide you with expert security advice delivered at a level that suits your needs. You receive the assistance you need to develop and implement an effective security management system that meets the requirements of the ISPS Code.

Advisory services for port operators
The ISPS code requires that security assessments are carried out and that security plans are developed. Because no two ports or port facilities are the same, we will work with you to develop the most efficient and cost-effective range of advisory services suited to your organisation.

Port and port facilities can be very complex. We can provide you with a gap analysis a detailed report of the requirements necessary to achieve compliance with the ISPS Code and national requirements. Our analysis will identify the training needs of your port facility security officers (PFSOs) and others, and describe how to develop port facility security assessments (PFSAs) where applicable, and port facility security plans (PFSPs) for approval by contracting governments.

You may be able to use the gap analysis as the basis for an action plan, enabling you to develop your PFSP in-house. Should you require further assistance, we can work with you to develop a package that is tailored to your specific needs.
Training services for CSOs, SSOs and PFSOs
Required by some flag administrations, although not specifically required by the Code, is the need for security management training. We have developed programmes for company, ship and port facility security officers, which are available worldwide at times and locations of your choice.
