Example text

THE INTERNATIONAL SHIP AND PORT FACILITY SECURITY CODE Under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), a comprehensive security regime was formulated for international shipping to strengthen maritime security in general, and prevent and suppress acts of terrorism against the maritime realm more specifically. The series of measures, which were adopted in July 2004, included several amendments to the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), which aimed at enhancing maritime security onboard ships and at ship–port interface areas.

There are no mandatory guidelines for what constitutes perimeter security or mandated requirements to govern facility access controls. The ISPS Code does not even establish minimum training standards for becoming a “qualified” security officer. Another downside of the ISPS Code in its current defi nition is that its requirements are only for SOLAS-class ships. Therefore, the requirements do not apply to warships, government vessels, fishing vessels, and ships weighing less than 500 t. These vessels, however, are found everywhere in the maritime environment, and therefore, also in areas where maritime terrorism is perceived to be a threat, such as Southeast Asia and the Persian Gulf.

11 Before the meeting, the three littoral states were asked to outline a number of projects for which they wished to seek cooperation, for implementation, from interested stakeholders. However, none of the projects outlined were related to reducing the threat of piracy or maritime terrorism, which has dominated the security agenda and strategy of the United States since 9/11. All of the projects rather focused on enhancing safety and environmental protection in the straits. 12 This underlines the perception of the littoral states, namely, Indonesia and Malaysia, that is, addressing the threats of piracy and maritime terrorism is of less priority than improving navigational safety in the straits and the protection of its marine resources.
