IMO maritime security training is taking place for Libyan port facility security officers, managers and designated authority officials, from 18 to 22 August. The workshop aims to help the Libyan Government improve security risk assessments and control maritime transport through its territory.
Fifteen officers in charge of port security from ports across the country are attending, including five from the national maritime security committee in charge of oversight the implementation of the Code in the country.
Participants received training on how to carry out their duties, according to SOLAS Chapter XI-2 (click for details), the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code), and related guidance.
They were also taught to train other officials with similar responsibilities.
The workshop aspires to enable the IMO team to better understand the level of knowledge and current skills among the officials – with a view to assessing capacity and suitability of possible follow-up assistance.
