GUARDCON has been developed by BIMCO to assist the industry, and in particular shipowners and their P&I Clubs, by providing a clearly worded and comprehensive standard contract on which they can conclude agreements for security services. In parallel with the development of GUARDCON, BIMCO has also prepared Guidance on the Rules for the Use of Force. The booklet contains a copy of GUARDCON accompanied by Explanatory Notes and Guidance on Rules for the Use of Force (RUF) by Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel in Defence of a Merchant Vessel.

Electronic templates of GUARDCON are available to subscribers of BIMCO’s IDEA, which is an internet-based charter party editing system providing users with secure online access to Microsoft Word copies of a wide range of BIMCO standard contracts. The system uses a “pay as you go” print system so that users only pay for the final copies of the documents they produce.
