ISPS stands for International Ship and Port Facility Security Code. It is a set of regulations developed to protect ships and port facilities from terrorist attacks in the maritime sector.

The ISPS Code was adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2002 and is mandatory for all IMO member states to implement. The code requires ships and port facilities to conduct security assessments, develop a Security Plan, and implement the plan.

The main objectives of the ISPS Code are to:

  • Reduce the risk of terrorist attacks against ships and port facilities.
  • Enhance the security of ships and port facilities.
  • Ensure safety and stability in the maritime sector.

The ISPS Code plays a significant role in the maritime industry and helps to make ships and port facilities safer.
