Exercises and Drills

Port facilities must conduct regular security drills and exercises in compliance with ISPS requirements.

Under the Asia Pacific Economic Conference (APEC), the APEC Transportation Working Group provides port facilities with guidelines for conducting maritime security drills and exercises. The guidelines help port facilities comply with the ISPS requirements.

Each port facility needs to conduct a security drill at least once every three months and a security exercise at least once every 18 months.
