New Maritime Security Requirements


Lloyd’s has issued a notice describing IMO adopted new regulations to enhance maritime security through amendments to SOLAS Chapter V, Chapter XI (now re-numbered Chapter XI-1) and adoption of a new Chapter XI-2. It introduces new requirements for all ships to have their unique seven-digit Lloyd’s Register number (IMO number) permanently marked in a conspicuous location, as defined by IMO. Existing ships must comply with this requirement by the first scheduled drydocking after 1st July 2004, and newbuilds by July 2004.

Chapter XI-1 also requires a continuous synopsis record to be held on board, which will contain details of the ship, such as name, flag, port of registry, IMO number and owner/manager information. This ‘rolling’ record will be issued and kept up to date by the vessel’s flag administration. The new Chapter XI-2 requires ships and companies to comply with the requirements of the ‘International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code’. The Code provides a framework through which ships and port facilities can co-operate to help detect and deter acts of terrorism. Chapter XI-2 also requires all ships to be provided with a ‘ship security alert system’ which will transmit a security alert to a designated authority when activated in an emergency situation.

New amendments to Chapter V Regulation 19 have now also been adopted, which require allships of 300 GT and above but less than 50,000 GT to be provided with an automatic identificationsystem (AIS) at the first safety equipment survey after 1st July 2004 or by end December 2004,whichever occurs first. Earlier AIS requirements for passenger ships, tankers and other ships remain unchanged. Additionally, amended regulation now requires that the AIS system be in operation continuously.
