Port Security Advisory

Best practices

  • Best Practices - General Information
    The United States Coast Guard, International Port Security Program (IPSP) has been collecting examples of maritime security best practices from facilities around the world. They are presented here so that facilities may learn from one another, align their security practices, and to encourage bilateral or multilateral discussions between nations. Special emphasis is placed on sharing low cost security practices or innovative applications that can have a significant impact on facility security. Selected best practices will be published and updated on this site on an ongoing basis. Photographs of best practices will be included whenever possible to best illustrate the practice.
