Liberian Registry Takes ISPS Training And Verification Initiative

Monday, April 21, 2003
The Liberian Registry has taken a unique initiative by electing to train its own worldwide network of inspectors to perform verification audits for shipowners, operators and managers under the International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code. It has also decided to approve specific members of the International Association of Classification Societies as competent to carry out ISPS audits on behalf of Liberian-registered vessels.

The Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry has contracted with leading international security specialists to train fifty Liberian inspectors over the next three months in three key locations - North America, Europe and the Far East - in the specialist skills required to perform ISPS and other security audits. The Registry will also be conducting its own Ship Security Plan approvals for the entire Liberian fleet rather than delegating this task.

The Liberian Registry has meanwhile named Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd and the American Bureau of Shipping as classification societies, which have demonstrated their security-competence as Recognized Security Organizations, as provided for under the ISPS Code.
