 A five-day workshop on maritime security and The International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code concluded today in Maputo, Mozambique (24 -28 July).

The course provided port facility security officers with the necessary knowledge to perform their duties in accordance with the requirements of key IMO maritime security measures*.
As a results, participants improved their knowledge and skills of those requirements with a view to train others with similar responsibilities. The workshop included a port visit, various group exercises and interactive activities - providing solid grounding on the oversight roles and responsibilities of the designated authority.
Organized at the request of the Maritime Authority under the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Mozambique, the training was conducted in response to the findings of a maritime security table top exercise on contingency planning held by IMO in Mozambique in April 2016.
 International Maritime Organization (IMO) was represented by Gisela Vieira.
