To successfully achieve the security objectives, a Ship Security Plan (SSP) has been developed for each Company ship based on individual Ship Security Assessments (SSAs). The Plan defines duties and responsibilities of all security related onboard personnel, security measures during various shipboard operations and activities depending on security level in force, emergency response actions and respective drills and exercises as well as procedures for audits, reviews and certification of the ship. The Plan is implemented and maintained onboard as defined in relevant procedures within the Plan. The development, implementation and maintenance of the Plan are in compliance with the provisions of SOLAS Chapter XI-2 and ISPS Code.
Furthermore, the Company has established Security department and has assigned Company Security Officers (CSOs) who have the overall responsibility for the security onboard Company’s ships as provided for by the ISPS Code and is responsible for the co-ordination of necessary security related activities.
In case that during any ship operation, a conflict arises between safety and security measures, safety prevails. The Master must exercise his overriding authority and take all appropriate measures to ensure that the safety of the crew, the ship, her cargo and the environment are not compromised and/or endangered.
