Significant potential repercussions of long term disruptions to the global supply chain operations have rendered the maritime ports an attractive terrorist target and important asset during natural disasters. Referring to the quick recovery ability of ports from natural and terrorist threats, authorities have coined the term resiliency and devised strategies and frameworks for providing increased resiliency. The ISPS Code introduces new mandatory security and risk assessment procedures to improve the security of the ports. However, this code does not include any guidelines for the implementation and assessment of its requirements leaving the stakeholders in the dark.
Publications that are merely a collection of power point slides or presentation will not be funded by APEC. APEC encourages electronic publication of project outputs and results, and can assist where appropriate with media releases and development of articles ; All publications, reports, and information best practices will be made available in hardcopy and electronic format as well as being posted to the MEG-SEC website.
All such documents will be in compliance with APEC publication guidelines. Outputs resulting from this project will not be sold.
Gender Workshops will be open to male and female participants alike and economies are encouraged to nominate participants from both genders. Contracts, and the workshop curriculum, will a requirement that appropriate account of gender issues be taken in designing and conducting workshops.
Participant Economies within this project will be urged to target women when nominating workshop participants. Economies develop the capability to become subject matter experts in scoring port critical infrastructure for threat, vulnerability and consequence and then demonstrate how an understanding of risk can improve their strategic and tactical plans creating an environment for the safe and efficient movement of goods, services, and people across APEC economies.
APEC funding will continue to offer this capacity building resource to additional APEC economies in an effort to combat terrorism and criminal threats to economies maritime infrastructure.
The thrust of each PSRAT Workshop is to enable participants to use a risk mitigation strategy to identify key threats to a port or port facility.
Risks can then be properly addressed through planning and executing marine security drills and exercises in order to build security capabilities and awareness.
Upon completion of the workshop participants will serve as trainers for other port security personnel in their home Economies.
Several scoring scenarios are executed and the results quantified. The results provide a means to rank and subsequently reduce risk within the port or port facility. The scoring scenarios and resulting data are critical for accurately assessing and mitigating risk to a port or port facility and allows for optimum allocation of resources in order to address key targets identified as being at risk.
Improving ISPS Code implementation in the APEC region will ensure the security of people and goods and improve the facilitation of commerce, particularly within developing Economies, by enabling informed resourcing toward closing identified gaps and challenges.
The four day SATW employs theoretical lessons, presentations on audit processes and techniques, and a port facility visit.
This will ensure each workshop achieves its goals by: Uniform and standard self assessments improve ISPS Code compliance and oversight, mitigate the risk of importing terrorism via maritime commerce, and allow optimal, uninterrupted flow of maritime commerce.
The status and results of the workshops will be presented by the Project Overseer as reports for review and discussion during MEG-SEC meetings, affording the MEG-SEC membership the opportunity to provide input toward continuous improvement of the processes.The study set out to identify the effectiveness of the ISM Code by going to the field.
It found a wide disparity between the perceptions of managers and seafarers in the implementation of the ISM Code and as such a considerable gap between the expected outcome of the Code and the practice.
optimal scope of work for international integrated systems a thesis submitted to the graduate school of natural and applied sciences of middle east technical university. The purpose of this thesis is the identification of emerging technologies that can help in implementing policies aimed at increasing the port resiliency against terrorist and natural threats.
Additionally, guidelines regarding the incorporation of these technologies into the implementation process of the ISPS Code as well as how much the ISPS.
This Electronic Edition Is Licensed To - Madden Maritime ism code international safety management code and guidelines on implementation of the ism code. In response to this terrorist attack which shook the world, the International Ship and Port Security Code (ISPS) came into effect on July 1st, The ISPS Code is part of the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS, ) and is binding on SOLAS contracting parties.
This thesis is partially incomplete as it was not possible to study the configurations of implementation of the ISPS code. It received its start from the 9/11 attacks It took almost three years to create and implement a new code and this was the fastest implementation in IMO’s history.
This slowness to react can be understood when one.
