Port Security (ISPS)

After the terrorist attacks in the USA on 11 September 2001, in the 22nd General Meeting of International Maritime Organization (IMO) held in November 2001, to which Turkey is a member, it was agreed unanimously to implement new measures to the maritime sector to prevent terror attacks that may occur on or from the sea.

Maritime Security Committee (MSC) has been authorized. Following numerous meetings, the ISPS Code, which includes new measures for the security of vessels and port facilities, has been established.
