Training for port security officials in Tunisia
13/10/2017  An IMO workshop has provided training for Tunisian port security officials to design and undertake drills and exercises in ports.  The training course helped to reinforce and improve existing security measures in the country by training participants to conduct drills and exercises in line with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code((ISPS Code) and recommendations in the APEC Manual of Maritime Security Drills and Exercises for Port Facilities.

The fibre glass vessel problem
