Mauritius concludes maritime exercise

28th July 2016 - 10:41 GMT | by Beth Maundrill in London


The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has completed a maritime security tabletop exercise held in Mauritius over the 26-27 July. 

The exercise looked at the need for an integrated national approach to implementation of maritime security measures. These included the IMO’s Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention and International Ship and Port Facility (ISPS) Code.

‘The aims are to simulate typical security related scenarios in order to provide opportunity for the various government agencies with maritime security responsibilities to raise awareness of their roles and capacities with a view to develop appropriate response plans and procedures,’ said an IMO spokesperson.
