Title: ISPS


1
ISPS
  • International
  • Ship
  • Port Facility
  • Security Code

2
ISPS
  • Adopted in 2002 under the auspices of the
    International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
  • Became mandatory on 1st July 2004 for all Member
    States of SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea).

3
ISPS Main Objectives
  • To detect security threats and implement security
    measures.
  • To establish roles and responsibilities
    concerning maritime security for governments,
    local administrations and ship port industries
    at the national and international level.
  • To collate and promulgate security-related
    information.
  • To provide a methodology for security assessments
    so as to have in place plans and procedures to
    react to changing security levels.

4
ISPS
  • For ships, the framework includes requirements
    for
  • Ship security plans.
  • Ship security officers.
  • Company security officers.
  • Certain onboard equipment.

5
ISPS
  • For port facilities, the requirements include
  • Port facility security plans.
  • Port facility security officers.
  • Certain security equipment.

6
ISPS
  • In addition the requirements for ships and for
    port facilities include
  • Monitoring and controlling access.
  • Monitoring the activities of people and cargo.
  • Ensuring security communications are readily
    available.

7
ISPS Is It Working How Do We Know?
  • Few serious incidents have been reported.
  • Probably introduced in time to have thwarted
    possible threats at a time of increasing risk.

8
ISPS
  • What does this mean for the Liner Agency
    business?
  • Some additional administration in respect of
    collecting from carriers clients ISPS charges
    levied by some ports.
  • Explaining to clients who may use several ports,
    why there is a difference in level of charge and
    why some ports do not charge at all. (The client
    of course believes if some ports dont charge,
    then others should not).

9
ISPS
  • As part of increased security arrangements at
    ports more scanners have been introduced,
    resulting in more import containers being
    selected for scanning.
  • When this arises, a further scanning charge is
    levied by ports. This is sometimes charged direct
    to the client by the port, but in some ports it
    is only debited to the lines agent for them to
    recover from their client. In all cases this is
    in addition to the ISPS charge.

10
ISPS
  • Carriers Agents Marine or Port Operations
    departments are required to submit Ship
    Pre-Arrival Information to Port Authorities at
    least 24 hours before the eta of a vessel at
    port.
  • The pre arrival information must be completed by
    the vessel and communicated to the Agent to
    submit to their local Port Authority. This
    information includes
  • Name of Ship.
  • IMO Number.
  • Registered Flag State.
  • Date of Ships last visit to UK.
  • Dangerous Goods Carried.
  • Confirmation that the ship has a valid
    International Ships Security Certificate (ISSC).
  • Security Level the ship is operating at.
  • Last 10 Ports of call, and security levels of the
    ship at these ports, were any special security
    measures taken by the ship at those Ports?
  • Any other practical security information. For
    example, was any suspicious activity noted during
    the voyage?

11
ISPS
  • Visitors to vessels whilst in port are required
    to have identification and must sign-in when
    boarding vessels, and sign-off when leaving
    vessels.
  • Liner Agents Marine or Port Operations
    departments should coordinate all visitors to
    vessels.

12
ISPS Conclusion
  • It is difficult to define the success of ISPS,
    but without it too many opportunities would exist
    for people or organisations who may have
    subversive objectives to infiltrate the maritime
    transportation chain.
  • The additional administration for liner agents is
    not onerous now that the industry in general and
    its clients have a full understanding of what is
    required.
