IMO trains Libyan port security officers on ISPS

Libyan port and maritime security officers have trained on IMO’s International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) which sets out preventive security measures to detect and defer threats to ships and port facilities.

The participants were in charge of port security throughout the country, and also include members of the national committee in charge of oversight of compliance in Libya, who will be part of a special session dedicated to oversight responsibilities.

The training workshop which ended on 31 October focused on equipping the officers with the necessary skills and knowledge to plan and conduct effective self-assessments of compliance with relevant IMO regulations/guidelines.

The workshop was conducted in neighbouring Tunis, Tunisia, and followed the initial training of the same group of Libyan officers in April this year.
