P S Assessment Methodology 1.
 Obtain  data on the Port
 Analyse the data and port maps
 Assess the risks to the port facilities
 Identify most relevant port facilities
 Report on the port facilities
 Develop, then submit Maritime Security
  Plan for approval (Annex 2 of Regs.)

   NIA and NPA have each submitted ‘port
    security assessments’ to NDOT (Maritime
    Security Advisory Committee) for consideration
   Formal Security Plans have yet to be submitted
    since the Regulations have not been circulated
    for public comment and hence not promulgated

    informed about ISPS Code?
