Marine Security Management and Control as per ISPS Code Course

Introduction to ISPS Code

The International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code symbolizes a consensus-driven effort to bolster security on a global scale, designed to counter menaces to ships and port facilities. Originating as a result of the 9/11 atrocities in the United States, it is embodied within the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, specifically in chapter XI-2, which is focused on intensifying maritime safety.

Consisting of a dual structure with both obligatory and advisory sections, the crux of the ISPS Code mandates a risk management approach tailored to the unique needs of each ship and port facility. This ISPS code and marine security management course enables sovereign entities to balance the scales of threat and vulnerability, refining security measures in line with established security levels.
