Supply Chain Security Guide - The guide addresses the following main topics: What is supply chain security? Is it important to know about it? Who are the principal players / initiators? What are ports and logistic operators required to know or do so as to be ready when the SCS initiative compliance becomes globally compulsory? What is likely to happen in the field of SCS in the coming period of time? What is the expected end vision?
Worldwide Port and Maritime operations and their associated facilities and infrastructure collectively represent one of the single greatest unaddressed challenges to the security of nations and the global economy today. The reason that ports and shipping activity are so difficult to secure lies primarily in their topography.

In terms of port security, the most critical concern begins at the other end of the journey with verification of the contents of containers i
The Maritime Security Market 2010-2020: Piracy, Shipping & Seaports report examines the global market for maritime security from an impartial standpoint. We offer a review of contracting activity, and products and services, based on our analysis of information obtained from multiple sources. The report draws on official corporate and governmental announcements, media reports, policy documents, industry statements and expert opinion.

Following the 9/11 attacks ten years ago, a customs supply chain security paradigm emerged consisting of new national customs policies and World Customs Organization (WCO) standards intended to deter international trade transport from becoming a conduit for the delivery of violent extremism. This paper describes the paradigm‟s characteristics and logical inferences that can be drawn from it, especially related to its major policy themes of advance cargo information submission requirements, customs risk management, non-intrusive cargo scanning equipment, and security-oriented Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) programmes

MATRA provides a structured discussion for agencies, and it also helps through the use of reports on risk. We meet quarterly, as all the bodies involved, to check on the progress that has been made in dealing with risks.There exists a danger for seaports: they can be forced to react to many different kinds of security concerns. There is a need to identify just which priorities to focus our efforts on at any time, and to encourage government agencies – who have their own concerns and priorities – to focus their efforts on a helpful way. The risk assessment helps us to influence them, which helps the agencies intercept persons, vessels and cargos of interest, which in turn also helps us to reduce the impact that these efforts have on the normal commercial activities of the seaport.

The aim of this handbook is to provide freight forwarding companies with a practical guide on security initiatives they have to be aware of to legally conduct their business and on how to comply with security rules. CLECAT has always acknowledged the importance and necessity of a functioning security programme, which besides protecting infrastructure, assets and different interests has in the protection of citizens its main objective. This is not only essential to counter possible acts of terrorism, but also to benefit from the additional advantages that a security programme may bring to day-to-day business: theft prevention, decreasing insurance costs, advantages granted by Customs (faster clearance of goods, less/no screening, less documentation, smaller financial guarantees), etc. Whilst fortunately cargo operations have not been the target of terrorist actions so far, there is no certainty that the cargo supply chain may not be used to perpetrate such actions. The reason why this document is created is to provide some guidance to CLECAT Members in an area where it is increasingly difficult to avoid losing orientation and where it becomes increasingly easy to embark in time consuming (and often very costly) endeavours for little or no avail. CLECAT intends to keep a practical style and to prepare new versions of it in future, by inserting Members’ observations as well by disposing of information which has become obsolete.

This SUPPORT paper demonstrate how the Bow-Tie technique was combined with Enterprise Architecture approaches (see Winter and Fischer (2006)) to develop a complete model that captures all elements of Risk (overall risk value, impact values, consequence values, control factor values) faced by a port for various threat scenarios, and how EA thinking was applied to provide Best Practice guides for implementation of control factors.

The SUPPORT project is a co-funded research project aimed at raising the current level of security systems in European Ports. The purpose of this document is to explain the following 1. What are the problems being faced by European Ports today in the context of security? 2. What are the solutions to these problems being proposed by the SUPPORT project? 3. How will Ports implement the SUPPORT Solutions and what value will be achieved from doing so?

The main objective of this Regulation is to introduce and implement Community measures aimed at enhancing the security of ships used in international trade and domestic shipping and associated port facilities in the face of threats of intentional unlawful acts.The Regulation is also intended to provide a basis for the harmonised interpretation and implementation and Community monitoring of the special measures to enhance maritime security adopted by the Diplomatic Conference of the IMO on 12 December 2002, which amended the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS Convention) and established the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code).
