International shipping industry organisations have launched a new website to provide maritime security guidance to companies and mariners. The new website www.maritimeglobalsecurity.org provides security guidance, which the industry supplies, as well as links to useful maritime and military security resources.
INTERCARGO expressed its concern over the latest piracy incident off Nigeria, where a 57k dwt bulk carrier was attacked by pirates 35 miles south of Brass, kidnapping 10 crewmembers. The Association noted that this incident is a vivid reminder that piracy as an organised criminal activity remains a significant threat to international shipping, trade, and the people who serve it.
BIMCO, ICS, INTERTANKO and INTERCARGO have jointly released an updated version of ‘Guidelines for Owners, Operators and Masters for Protection Against Piracy in the Gulf of Guinea Region.’
