The authors of the website commented: “In a world of increasingly complex security risks, it is essential that mariners and ships are protected.
“The new website will be a freely available facility where companies and mariners can access essential guidance and information to help them comprehensively prepare for voyages through areas of security risk.”
The website aims to ease access to maritime security information and guidance while providing best practice guides to help companies risk assess voyages and mitigate against external threats.
