The dead line of 1 July 2004 for ISPS Code compliance is
drawing nearer. Ports are to tackle with many issues and
difficulties anticipated for meeting the IMO ISPS Code requirements.
VPA has set up this page to provide member ports with some
information and documents thus assisting them in the implementation
of the ISPS Code. Discussion and collaboration for the above
amongst member ports and between member ports with VPA and
relevant authorities is also invited to share experience
and knowledge and to facilitate the tasks of ISPS compliance.
