Ship Security Plans


Ship Security Plans should be provided in accordance with the International Ship and Port Security Code.

The plan is intended to prevent illegal acts against a ship and its crew, and must identify the responsibilities of the master, the ship security officer and the shipping company security officer.

The plan should identify the required security levels:

Security Level 1 means the level for which minimum appropriate protective security measures shall be maintained at all times.

Security Level 2 means the level for which appropriate additional protective security measures shall be maintained for a period of time as a result of heightened risk of a transportation security incident.

Security Level 3 means the level for which further specific protective security measures shall be maintained for a limited period of time when a transportation security incident is probable or imminent, although it may not be possible to identify the specific target.

Marex has always adopted a practical approach to all its documentation, due to the employment of master mariners with experience in the marine environment, and the Ship Security Plan is no exception. Plans developed by Marex will conform with the regulation and provide the ship with a practical level of security.
