The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) is a comprehensive set of measures to enhance the security of ships and port facilities, developed in response to the perceived threats to ships and port facilities in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in the United States. 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), 1974. The Code has two parts, one mandatory and one recommendatory.

In essence, the Code takes the approach that ensuring the security of ships and port facilities. It is a risk management activity to determine what security measures are appropriate and assess the risks in each particular case. The purpose of the Code is to provide a standardized, consistent framework for evaluating risk, enabling Governments to offset changes in threat with changes in vulnerability for ships and port facilities through the determination of appropriate security levels and corresponding security measures. The Maritime Security Management and Control training course will help the participants gain knowledge on International Ship and Port Facility Security Code and effectively manage the Maritime Security as per international standards.


At the end of this Maritime Security Management and Control training seminar, delegates should be able to:

  • Define the nature of their facility and how they are affected by the requirements of the ISPS code
  • Identify the mandatory and guidance regulations of the ISPS code
  • Develop risk assessment tools towards the Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA)
  • Construct the 3 levels of the Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP) with enhanced knowledge of security issues
  • Effectively operate and interact the port facility security plan with the ships security officer and ships master


This training seminar will be of benefit to those who find themselves responsible for or involved with maritime security at port facilities. In addition, it will raise awareness for that personnel who have been allocated potential or specific tasks in an existing security programme.


The delegates will be involved in the latest trends in seminar presentations. The classroom presentations are made up of interactive practical exercises, supported by audio visual material and case studies. Delegates will be expected to participate actively in relating the principles of Maritime security management to the specific needs for their industry.  This practical development of skills will benefit delegates who then can return to work ready for implementation of security measures and plans.

Pre and Post-course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training and the pre and post skill and ability of participants.
