Panama increases ISPS certification

Thursday, June 24, 2004
The Panama Maritime Authority (AMP) has announced it has issued Full Term ISSC certificates to 65% of the fleet that has filed its ship security plans. Some 4,677 ship security plans have been filed by ship owners and been approved.

Eight days before the July 1st deadline, AMP officials said that the AMP’s Maritime Security Department has issued some 3,059 five-year International Ship Security Certificates (ISSC) to the vessels that have completed all requirements for the issuance of the ISSC. There is only 100 ISSC certificates pending, due to lack of submittals of the audit reports carried out by the RSOS.

AMP officials have extended the Maritime Security Department working schedule from Monday to Friday until 22:00 (LT) and on Saturday until 14:00 (LT) to process the requests sent to the AMP.
