Best Practices

Best practices for port facility security shared by Singapore.

Under the Asia-Pacific Economic Conference (APEC), the APEC Transportation Working Group identified the need for port facilities in the ASEAN member countries to share and align their best practices.

Singapore has supported and contributed materials to this development as a member of the APEC Maritime Expert Group. Selected best practices will be available from this page, and they cover the following areas:

  • Manual on Port Security Measures
  • Manual of Maritime Security Drills and Exercises for Port Facility

Going beyond the ISPS Code, the MPA has introduced additional measures as follows:

  • HARTS
  • Harbour Craft Security Code
  • Pleasure Craft Security Code
  • Ship Self-Security Assessment
  • Restricted Areas around Key Installation
