IMO Holds Port Security Workshop in Veracruz, Mexico

The July 12-13 event aimed to promote a multi-agency approach to maritime security and law enforcement to improve cooperation among government departments.

The International Maritime Organization held a port security workshop in Veracruz, Mexico, on July 12-13. The event aimed to promote a multi-agency approach to maritime security and law enforcement to improve cooperation among government departments. The event also highlighted the need for an integrated approach to the implementation of SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) Chapter XI-2, the ISPS Code, and broader security measures.

Participants explored a number of hypothetical scenarios related to maritime and port security. The workshop also reviewed existing procedures to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement. Around 40 participants from various national agencies attended the event, including port authorities, customs and immigration services, federal police, medical services, naval authorities, merchant marine, and local and regional authorities.

The workshop was organized by IMO in coordination with the Inter-American Committee against Terrorism of the Organization of American States and the Mexican Marine Secretariat (SEMAR).
