 For the first time, a national workshop on IMO's International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS Code) was delivered in Arabic during a five-day training course held in Doha, Qatar (22-26 April).

 
Designated authority and port facility security officers had the chance to improve their knowledge and understanding through practical exercises as well as class-based training in how to implement the relevant provisions of the ISPS Code, SOLAS Chapter XI-2 and related guidance. The participants will now be equipped with the necessary skills to train others with similar responsibilities.
 
Organized at the request of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Qatar, and funded by the Government of Qatar, this workshop will also allow IMO to assess the need for developing new courses and further capacity-building missions.
 
The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) has formed the basis for a comprehensive mandatory security regime for international shipping.
