THE ISPS CODE
To enhance maritime security, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) which provides a standardized, consistent framework for evaluating risk, enabling Governments to offset changes in threat with changes in vulnerability for ships and port facilities through determination of appropriate security levels and corresponding security measures.
The ISPS Code is implemented through chapter XI-2. Special measures to enhance maritime security in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). The Code has two parts, one mandatory and one recommendatory.
This Code provides a standardized, consistent framework for managing risk and permitting the meaningful exchange and evaluation of information between Contracting Governments, companies, port facilities, and ships.
