Shipping industry launches security resources

International shipping industry organisations, with military support, have launched a new website dedicated security.  Importantly, they aim to provide comprehensive resources on maritime security guidance to companies and mariners.

The new website provides security-related guidance produced by the industry as well as links to other useful maritime and military security resources.

Therefore, in a world of increasingly complex security risks, mariners and ships must protected themselves comprehensively against all threats.

The new website will be a freely available facility where companies and mariners can access essential guidance and information.  So, the resources contained therein will help them comprehensively prepare for voyages through areas of security risk.

Certainly, the aim is to ease access for companies and seafarers to maritime security related information and guidance.

Central to the website are new best practice guides to help companies and mariners assess and manage risk on voyages.   The website also provides information on how to mitigate against external threats to their safety.

The three publications below provide guidance on piracy, armed robbery, and region-specific threats:

  • Global Counter Piracy Guidance for Companies, Masters and Seafarers.  It is a new publication containing guidance on piracy and armed robbery that can be used by mariners around the world.
  • BMP5: Best Management Practices to Deter Piracy and Enhance Maritime Safety in the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea.  It contains guidance for region-specific threats.
  • The third edition of the Guidelines for Owners, Operators and Masters for protection against piracy and armed robbery in the Gulf of Guinea region.
