The latest updated Shipmaster’s Security Manual is an indispensable tool for the shipmaster and shipowners to reduce the human and economic cost related to security breaches and illegal maritime activities. Produced as an important reference manual and memory-aid it contains updated topic-specific advice on key maritime security issues and is a goldmine of information to keep on board for master’s referral and indeed, for company security officers. Its effective use and the implementation of the guidance it contains will help shipowners, managers and companies in general see that security, too, should be considered as a profit centre rather than a just a pure “overhead”. Minimising risk can and does improve the bottom line.
Designed for practical onboard use, the manual provides precise, easily accessible, and current information for those forced to confront security problems on a daily basis. Providing advice and in many cases guidance on piracy, drug smuggling, stowaways, SOLAS and the ISPS Code and boat people (illegal immigration and boat refugees), it will continue to be reviewed and updated every two years.
BIMCO has had to increase the price of the manual slightly since the previous edition. The increase is due to the many additional pages inserted, print costs and inflationary overheads, but we are confident that this manual represents significant value for money and is an indispensable guide. Page for page it is actually cheaper than previous editions!

It is expected that the Shipmaster’s Security manual will be re-issued with the latest updates every 12 – 24 months. If important updates become available before a new issue of the manual is released, such updates will be made available to customers as soft copies free of charge for in-office/onboard print.
