International Ship and Port Facility Code - ISPS


Simek has been awarded the ISPS code. The International Ship and Port Facility Security code is an amendment to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention on minimum security arrangements for ships, ports and government agencies.

The ISPS Code applies to ships on international voyages and the port facilities serving such ships.[4]

The main objectives of the ISPS code are:

  •          To detect security threats and implement security measures
  •          To establish roles and responsibilities concerning maritime security for governments, local administrations, ship and port industries at the national and international level
  •          To provide a methodology for security assessments so as to have in place plans and procedures to react to changing security levels

The code has certain requirements for ships and ports safety.

For port facilities such as Simek, the requirements include:

  •          Port facility security plans
  •          Port facility security officers
  •          Certain security equipment
