 ISPS Code

​​International Ship and Port Facility Security – code

 
International Regulations on Safeguarding Ships and Port Facilities were amended by Diplomatic participants of the World Maritime Security Conference in December 2002 in London through the International Agreement on Life Safety at Sea, 1974. (SOLAS 74) Ratified by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia as Contracting Governments Simultaneously in all ports of member countries of the IMO (International Maritime Organization) starting July 1, 2004.

The main port of Belawan is one of several ports in Indonesia that has been declared Compliance by the Director General of Sea Transportation as the DA (designated authority) through the "Short Term Statement of Compliance of a Port Facility" with KL Number 94/93 / ISPS / DV / ST- 04 issued on July 1, 2004 in Jakarta.

The locations that have implemented the ISPS-code at the Port of Belawan are the Ujung Baru area (starting from docks 101 to 113), Passenger Terminal, Citra Port (covering docks 201 to 203, Semen Andalas Indonesia, PT. Waruna Nusa Sentana Shipyard, IKD), Pertamina Jetty and UTPK.

To anticipate the visit of ships that have not implemented the ISPS code, the Indonesian Port Management I have designated Belawan Lama Port as the berth place for ships that have not implemented the ISPS-code. This is the reason why Belawan Lama Port is not / has not been in ISPS yet. In line with the determination of the ISPS at the Port of Belawan, only ships with compliance should be allowed to dock at compliant docks.

The problems that arise when ships that are not compliant will dock at Belawan Lama Port are: Because they are not as conducive as ISPS demands. Because they do not have supporting facilities such as an integrated pipe system for small inter-island tankers that will unload CPO. In general, the place for hoarding goods is in warehouses which are currently designated as Restricted Areas. There is a desire to make adjustments to activities.

Risks faced by the Port of Belawan: If the current situation is in accordance with the wishes and demands of service users, it is possible to withdraw the Statement of Compliance for the port of Belawan.

Impact of the withdrawal of the Statement of Compliance for Belawan Port: Belawan Port will be blacklisted by IMO. Pelabuhan Indonesia I will suffer losses, because to implement the ISPS-code implementation to date has spent a lot of funds. There is a risk of being penalized by IMO, where the ships of other IMO members are prohibited from entering Belawan Port. On the other hand, ships from Belawan Port that will enter the ports of IMO member countries will be prohibited from entering their ports. There will be economic turmoil followed by social turmoil.​
