The Need for Port Security
The terror attacks of September 11th raised the global awareness about terrorism and its impact on the world economy. The potential to ship explosives, weapons, chemical material and “dirty bombs” into unsuspecting harbors has become a major threat to the global community. Ports also face an added level of threat with the continued rise of criminal activity.
To address the issue of seaport safety on a global scale, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) – at the behest of the United States – instituted the International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code in December 2002.
