  • Background and Introduction

    • South African Maritime Security Legislative Environment

  • The Impact of the ISPS Code on Port Operations

  • Port Security Upgrade Projects to Meet International Obligations



Introduction l.jpg
INTRODUCTION

  • With the IMO passing the ISPS Code for Ships & Port Facilities in 2002 at the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), SOUTH AFRICA became a signatory to the IMO resolution and the National Department of Transport (DOT) was designated as the Custodian for the implementation of the Code.

  • The ISPS Code was given effect by the Merchant Shipping (Maritime Security) Regulations, 2004.

  • All seven South African commercial ports are compliant with the Code and the Regulations of 2004.

  • Port Facilities and Service Providers within these ports that are required to have maritime security plans have such plans in place.

  • The National Ports Act 12 of 2005 places the responsibility of security of the overall Ports system with the Transnet National Ports Authority..


Introduction cont l.jpg
INTRODUCTION (CONT…)

  • Transnet TNPA has a responsibility of facilitating trade and contributing positively to strengthening the economy and contributing to the international competitiveness of South Africa and the Southern African Region.

  • This implies that the Ports have to function as effective and efficient business units to meet these demands, through a secure enabling environment.

  • Currently, security upgrade projects are being undertaken in all the ports, including the Port of Ngqura, which will be the eighth commercial port to be security regulated before the end of 2009.

  • These security upgrade projects are intended to match international standards as per requirements of the Code and the Regulations.

THE SOUTH AFRICAN MARITIME TRANSPORT SECURITY LEGISLATIVE ARRANGEMENTS

  • The Constitution of South Africa Act 108 of 1996;

  • The National Ports Act 12 of 2005;

  • The Merchant Shipping (Maritime Security) Regulations, 2004; and

  • The Maritime Transport Security Bill.

MERCHANT SHIPPING ACT, 1951; ARRANGEMENTS MARITIME SECURITY REGULATIONS, 2004

Purpose of the regulations

  • To safeguard against unlawful interferencewith maritime transport

  • To achieve this purpose, these regulations establish a regulatory framework centredaround the development of security plans for ships and other maritime transport operations

  • The implementation of this framework enables the Republic to meet its obligationsunder Chapter XI-2 of the Safety Convention and the ISPS Code

The impact of the Maritime Transport Security Bill:

  • The Bill extends its application to other (non-commercial) ports not under the control and management of TNPA.

  • According to TNPA Security Management, the issues that the Bill and its Regulations should take into consideration are:

  • The regulation and control of other port participants like small vessels and entertainment areas e.g. yachts, restaurants and casinos within the ports;

  • Shipping Agents should undergo training in the ISPS Code to appreciate the complications of Maritime Transport Security;

  • Adjusting the lifespan of the Maritime Transport Security Planning and Co-ordination Plan to match with the other Maritime Security Plans; and

  • Weapons and prohibited items permitted in terms of class by the Director-General should be done in consultation with the concerned maritime industry participants.

The implementation of the isps code in south african ports l.jpg
THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ISPS CODE IN SOUTH AFRICAN PORTS Arrangements

  • All seven South African commercial ports are compliant with the Code and the Regulations of 2004.

  • Eighth Port, the new Port of Ngqura is finalising the ISPS accreditation with the authorities

  • Maritime Security Plans were submitted for review by TNPA in April 2009

  • Instructions received from the DG DOT to vary the plans to address current maritime transport security outcomes;

  • Efforts being undertaken to minimise the negative impact of security ameliorations;

  • Emphasis on training and development of Port/ Facility Security Officers – currently undergoing a Maritime Security Managers Course; and

  • Implementation of uniform security policy, measures and procedures.


The impact of the isps code on port operations l.jpg
THE IMPACT OF THE ISPS CODE ON PORT OPERATIONS Arrangements

  • The positive impacts have been:

    • Improvement in the handling of vessel clearances;

    • Reduction of crime in the most crime-prolific areas of the Ports;

    • Standardisation of Security policies, measures procedures; and

    • Improved co-operation between Port/ Facility Security and State Security/ Emergency Agencies/ Services.


The impact of the isps code on port operations14 l.jpg
THE IMPACT OF THE ISPS CODE ON PORT OPERATIONS Arrangements

  • The challenges on the implementation of the ISPS Code on Ports Operations mainly related to:

    • Delays in vessel clearances;

    • Traffic congestions into and out of the Port/ Facility entrance points;

    • Resistance to co-operate with Security policies, measures procedures

      • MITIGATION: SA Maritime Transport Security Bill;

    • Uncertainty with regards to privately-owned Port Facilities.

      • MITIGATION: SA Maritime Transport Security Bill;



Port security upgrade projects to meet international obligations l.jpg
PORT SECURITY UPGRADE InfrastructurePROJECTS to Meet International Obligations

  • The main focus of the project has been to:

    • lay fibre optic cables;

    • install the hardware (readers, cameras etc.); and

    • ensure that the flow of traffic and various control /access buildings are built.

  • Currently sophisticated electronic security surveillance systems incorporating infra-red detection and closed circuit television are amongst some of the equipment being installed.

  • Steel palisade perimeter fencing is almost complete and purpose designed access control facilities are being replaced, up-graded or installed.

  • This is to safeguard TTNPA assets and cargo, whilst simultaneously monitoring the movement of people and vehicles at the port access/egress control points.
