Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) Management and Monitoring
Our Global Response Centre provides 24/7 testing and monitoring of SSAS for vessels. Upon detection of an SSAS alert, Securewest will notify appropriate governmental authorities, in accordance with each vessel’s flag state authority statutes or regulations. We will also notify owners and/or vessel managers by following pre-planned response procedures both parties have agreed upon. The service meets the requirements of International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) 1974 XI-2 6.2.1.
ISPS Ship Security Assessment and Plan Services
We can supply an ISPS qualified assessor (according to para 8.4-B) to conduct the inspection of your vessel, Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU) or installation to help you gain flag state approval.
The assessor will be able to produce your Ship or Port Security assessment in line with the requirements of the ISPS code and outline a Ship or Port Facility Security Plan. They will provide guidance and instruction throughout the ISPS approval process.
Securewest can also provide a range of in-country security vulnerability assessments for shore based assets including offices, operational centres and crewing quarters.
