In 2002 the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) held a conference for the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) to address the world's concern over the threats to the security of all aspects of the Maritime Industry. The outcomes of this were agreed by 108 member nations and led to the establishment of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code.
This has been further developed into Australian law under the Maritime Transport and Offshore Facilities Security Act and Regulations 2003.
If you are an employee of a port operator, port facility operator, offshore facility operator, service provider or a contractor and are required to work on a ship or in a security regulated port or facility, then by law you have certain responsibilities that you must satisfy regarding security.
IF YOU fail to meet these responsibilities then you could face prosecution under Australian law.
There are two unique courses designed to arm your security management staff with the knowledge required to understand how to manage the implementation of the ISPS Code in the workplace. Level 1 is an awareness level course of approximately 20 minutes, whilst Level 2 covers Maritime Security Awareness in more detail and is of approximately 3 hours duration. These courses have been developed by security experts who have been at the forefront of the implementation of the ISPS code in Australia.
