SECTION 1
INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE
1.1

Purpose and Regulatory Basis

The purpose of this Ship Security Plan (SSP) is to contribute to the prevention of illegal acts against the ship, its crew, and passengers. It has been prepared in accordance with: •

Chapter XI-2 of SOLAS and the International Ship and Port Security Code



The ABS Ship Security Guide



{Note: Here the plan should list any specific flag state or port state regulatory requirements that the ship plan is designed to meet.}

1.2

Plan Documentation and Control

Authorized copies of this SSP must be controlled so all authorized holders of the plan have the current revision. The Ship Security Officer (SSO) is responsible for issuing revisions to this plan, after the revisions have been approved by the Master/Captain and the Company Security Officer (CSO). Significant changes to this plan must also be approved prior to implementation by the flag administration or a Recognized Security Organization (RSO) approved by the flag administration.

1.3

Periodic Review Procedures

This plan must be reviewed annually by the SSO, based in part on the results of the annual security assessment performed by the Company Security Officer. If revisions are required, they will be drafted by the SSO for review and approval as specified above.

1.4

Plan Security and Control

Distribution of this SSP must be controlled so that it is restricted to personnel that have a need to know for purposes of implementing or assessing the security plan for this ship. The requirement to protect this information must be covered in security training sessions provided for company personnel. Also, all copies of this plan should be marked as specified by the company security program. All transmittals of a copy of the information in this plan should include a warning that the information is sensitive and must be protected. {Note: Because this plan is a generic one rather than a ship specific plan, it is not marked as sensitive information.}

{Ship security plans should be plainly marked to warn personnel having access tot he plan that it needs to be protected and should not be released.}
{Also, companies will need to coordinate with their flag administration and port facility security officers to determine what specific security information protection measures apply.}
