Shipmaster's Security Manual 2022
The BIMCO Shipmaster’s Security Manual is dedicated to helping members protect their crews, ships and operations against the challenges posed by pirates, drug smugglers, stowaways, terrorists and migrants. It provides guidance on the comprehensive regulatory framework that exists in the security field.
Preventative measures against these risks are not, however, restricted to actions to be taken by the ship’s officers and crew. Shipowners and operators can actively motivate their seafarers to mitigate risks through the adoption of company policies and training within each of the specific areas.
BIMCO is the world’s largest direct-membership organisation for shipowners, charterers, shipbrokers and agents. In total, around 60% of the world’s merchant fleet is a BIMCO member, measured by tonnage (weight of the unloaded ships).
The organisation has NGO status and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with offices in Athens, Singapore and Shanghai.
With around 1900 member companies across 120 countries – from the largest shipowners in the world to small local port agents and law firms, BIMCO represents a wide range of maritime companies and organisations.
BIMCO’s goal is to secure a level playing field for the global shipping industry. BIMCO therefore works to promote and secure global standards and regulations for the maritime sector. The organisation’s century long effort into creating standard contracts and clauses is an expression of that aim.
