The workshop offers overview of C-TPAT minimum-security criteria and case studies of successful C-TPAT implementation in daily port & terminal management. The U.S. and foreign-based Marine Port Authority and Terminal Operators (MPTO) must conduct a comprehensive assessment of their security practices based upon the C-TPAT minimum-security criteria.
At the workshop the port management professionals will share experiences how to implement C-TPAT accounting for complexity of marine port and terminal operations, how to apply security measures based upon risk. The workshop will teach attendees how to customize security plans depending on the C-TPAT member's business model, the port's geography, the commodities handled at the port and the terms and conditions of the lease agreement between the Marine Port Authority and the Terminal Operator.
Listen to international experts on implementation of ISPS code in daily maritime security procedures and learn in this intensive three day conference:
Development and implementation of ISPS code were sped up drastically in the last decade as a reaction to the September 11, 2001 attacks, bombing of the French oil tanker Limburg and increased piracy on the high seas. Having come into force in 2004, ISPS code prescribes responsibilities to governments, shipping companies, shipboard personnel, and port/facility personnel to "detect security threats and take preventative measures against security incidents affecting ships or port facilities used in international trade." The International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code is an amendment to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention (1974/1988) on minimum security arrangements for ships, ports and government agencies.
