IMO holds port security training exercises in Argentina
An IMO workshop on advanced port security drills and exercises has been held in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 25-28 October 2016. Participants from national port facilities, recognized security organizations and various authority officials are being trained to plan, conduct and evaluate security exercises, so that IMO maritime security measures can be better implemented, the organization said in its press release.
Specifically, the measures specified in the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS Code), taking into account the recommendations contained in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Manual of Drills and Exercises.
The workshop is organized by IMO, in collaboration with the Argentine Maritime Authority (Prefectura Naval Argentina). IMO is represented by Javier Yasnikouski and a team of consultants.
