Maritime security FAQ

Wednesday, June 23, 2004
The IMO issued a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) regarding maritime security. Among the FAQ is one asking how to determine whether a port facility is compliant with the ISPS Code. The answer given is that the ISPS Code Database includes a list of “ports including whether they have an approved port facility security plan (PFSP).” Note: I must point out that only a distinct minority of member governments so far have submitted reports to IMO, so the database is incomplete. It is also updated only periodically. I strongly recommend that interested persons check directly with the particular port facility and consider asking the port facility to provide a copy of the PFSP approval letter. (HK Law).
