The Code aims, amongst other things, to establish an international framework for co-operation between Contracting Governments, Government agencies, local administrations and the shipping and port industries to detect security threats and take preventive measures against security incidents affecting ships or port facilities used in international trade and to establish relevant roles and responsibilities at the national and international level. These objectives are to be achieved by the designation of appropriate personnel on each ship, in each port facility and in each shipowning company to make assessments and to put into effect the security plans that will be approved for each ship and port facility. The Conference also adopted several related resolutions, as well as amendments to chapters V and XI (now divided into chapters XI-1 and XI-2) of the SOLAS Convention, as amended. Under the new chapter XI-2, which provides the umbrella regulations, the ISPS Code became mandatory on 1 July 2004.

 

The Code is divided into two parts. Part A presents mandatory requirements, part B recommendatory guidance regarding the provisions of chapter XI-2 of the Convention and part A of the Code.

This publication includes the ISPS Code, relevant amendments to SOLAS and other resolutions of the Conference relating to work that had to be completed before the Code could be implemented in 2004, revision of the Code, technical co-operation and co-operative work with the International Labour Organization and the World Customs Organization.

 

IMO Code: K116E.

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
