IAMSP Submits MSC.1/Circ 1405 Comments

    IAMSP is pleased to announce that it has submitted its comments regarding MSC.1/Circ 1405. The document, while generally sound and providing valuable guidance, was reviewed by a number of members and the Executive of IAMSP. The result of significant discussions, research and other activities resulted in nearly eleven pages of qualitative comments being submitted to the International Maritime Organization for its consideration.
    Drawing upon a community that includes master mariners, operators, certified security professionals, members of regulatory and oversight bodies, the comments identify many strengths and potential areas of improvement in the document given the challenges faced by the maritime security community today. The intent of putting these challenges forward is to ensure that the guidance provided yields the best possible results for the maritime industry and ensures that IAMSP's members are fairly and appropriately represented.
    This effort is one of the tangible ways that IAMSP supports its membership--by assisting the providing a voice to its members on such important topics.
    Full, Associate and Student members seeking a copy of the document submitted to IMO may request it through either the President or the Secretary / Treasurer of the Association.The document may also be made available through the website to members only in the near future.
