Maritime Security Services

To enhance maritime security, the International Maritime Organization has adopted a new comprehensive security regime for international shipping, through the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, which is set to enter into force in July 2004.

International Register of Shipping (IRS) through its divisions has developed several services to help the maritime community to comply with the ISPS Code as well as build an effective security regime for the maritime community.

ISPS code in essence, approaches the issue of ensuring security as a risk management activity, which involves assessment of security risks and vulnerabilities and taking measures to reduce the risk levels, that is reducing the probability of occurrence as well as reducing the consequences in the event of a security incident.

As an organization with expertise in risk management and our past experience in Safety Management Systems, IRS is the right choice, for the shipping community to rely on, for assistance in implementation of the code. Realizing our role, we have established a cooperation with a reputed American Security Organization, Maritime Security Services, Inc. for providing various services.

Following are examples of maritime security related services, various divisions of IRS have developed.

INTLREG IMO DCS (Data Collection System)

The amendments to MARPOL Annex VI that makes the data collection system for fuel oil consumption of ships mandatory has already entered into force from 1 March 2018 (IMO Resolution MEPC.278 (70)). According to this regulation, for ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above engaged in international voyage, the data collecting and reporting will be required from the 2019 calendar year. International Register of Shipping (INTLREG) will do the fuel data collection via online portal for whole of the calendar year for subsequent reporting to the respective flag states in the IMO format during first quarter of 2020.

INTLREG will also conduct the relevant document review and issuance of the statement of compliance subject to the authorization from respective flag administration. Please also refer to IRS Circular 18-003 and 18-021 covering information for the preparation and submission of the SEEMP Part II (Data Collection Plan) for verification as well as Data Collection.
