14 Security 14.1 Objective


The objective of this Chapter is to provide guidance on the considerations and requirements necessary to meet the provisions of the IMO ISPS Code.


14.2 Scope 14.2.1 The scope of this Chapter is to ensure security in the operation of MASS by, inter alia:


n Ensuring the performance of all MASS security duties; n Controlling access to the MASS itself and to its control station; n Reducing the risk of third-party cyber interception of MASS communications; n Controlling the embarkation of persons on the MASS; n Monitoring restricted areas of the MASS control station to ensure that only authorised persons have access; n Monitoring both the MASS and the control station; n Ensuring that security communication is readily available.


14.2.2 The regulation of ship security may be found in a number of sources including in the Annex to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974 (as amended), SOLAS Chapter XI-2, as well as the International Ship & Port Facility Security Code, 2003 and SOLAS amendments (the ISPS Code).


14.2.3 Both SOLAS Chapter XI-2 and the mandatory obligations found in Part A of the ISPS Code apply to “ships” of 500 gross tonnage and upwards. Such obligations would only find application to those MASS which are registered as “ships” under international law and meet this tonnage threshold.


14.2.4 The Administration may allow a particular ship, or group of ships, to implement other security measures equivalent to those prescribed under both SOLAS Chapter XI-2 and in Part A of the ISPS Code, provided those measures are at least as effective in ensuring security.


14.2.5 Even outside of the direct applicability of SOLAS Chapter XI-2 and the ISPS Code, general principles of law require measures to be taken by MASS Operating Companies to ensure security in the operation of MASS.


14.2.6 This Chapter recognises the important difference between conventionally manned ships, being assisted by shore- based personnel and the operation of MASS, which in most cases are completely dependent on shore-based personnel for their navigation. Therefore, there is a clear need to define and enhance the security of the control station and control beyond the current regulations.


14.2.7 MASS Owners and Operating Companies are responsible for security in the operation of their vessels. Ensuring MASS security will require technical requirements for the MASS itself as well as procedures to be observed by the MASS operating company and the employment of qualified security personnel.
