Training on Ship and Port Facility Security


Since the provision of technical assistance, including the organisation of relevant training activities on the maritime legal acts of the European Union for States applying for accession to the Union, is among the Agency’s core tasks, as from 1 May 2018 EMSA is implementing a project entitled "Preparatory measures for the participation of Enlargement countries in EMSA’s work ".

In the framework of this project the Agency has undertaken the organisation of Training on Ship and Port Facility Security for Enlargement Countries which took place from 21 to 22 January 2020 at EMSA premises in Lisbon. The training was aimed at officials working at maritime administrations who are performing functions related to control of compliance of security measures on board ships and ports.

The overall objective of the training sessions was to ensure that participants are provided with a combined knowledge on the main elements of ISPS Code and auditing procedures at international and EU level and develop a practical approach to the interpretation and application of the ISPS Code both for ship and port facility related aspects.
