The World Maritime University is conducting a comparative study, which examines the domestic maritime security approaches undertaken at the international level on the issue of vessels that interact with isolated and/or low traffic remote facilities.
Project Comparative Study on Domestic Laws & Regulation related to Maritime Security Arrangements in Selected Unmanned and / or Remote Facilities examines both SOLAS vessels (pursuant to the International Maritime Organization’s International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code) and non-SOLAS vessels (with explanation of how domestic requirements for non-SOLAS vessels differ from those of the ISPS Code). Specifically, the study will respond to the following two questions:
- Are jurisdictions (within the scope of this project) complying with ISPS Code Section A including equivalent security arrangements? If so, how?
- If jurisdictions (within the scope of this project) are unable to comply with ISPS Code Section A, what alternative security policies, legislation, etc. are being put in place to mitigate security risks?
