REVISED INTERIM GUIDANCE TO SHIPOWNERS, SHIP OPERATORS AND SHIPMASTERS ON THE USE OF PRIVATELY CONTRACTED ARMED SECURITY PERSONNEL ON BOARD SHIPS IN THE HIGH RISK AREA


1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-ninth session (11 to 20 May 2011), approved interim guidance to shipowners, ship operators and shipmasters on the use of privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships in the High Risk Area.
2 Given the importance and urgent nature of the issue, and the need to further develop and promulgate detailed guidance and recommendations as soon as possible, the Committee approved and the Council authorized the convening of an intersessional meeting of the Maritime Security and Piracy Working Group (13 to 15 September 2011) to update the guidance.
3 The interim guidance was subsequently revised by the Maritime Safety Committee at its ninetieth session (16 to 25 May 2012) to take into account consequential amendments arising from the development of the interim guidance to private maritime security companies set out in MSC.1/Circ.1443 on Interim guidance to private maritime security companies providing privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships in the High Risk Area.
4 The Revised interim guidance to shipowners, ship operators and shipmasters on the use of privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships in the High Risk Area is set out in the annex.
5 The attached revised interim guidance should be read in conjunction with the interim recommendations set out in MSC.1/Circ.1443; MSC.1/Circ.1406/Rev.2 on Revised interim recommendations for flag States regarding the use of privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships in the High Risk Area; and MSC.1/Circ.1408/Rev.1 on Revised interim recommendations for port and coastal States regarding the use of privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships in the High Risk Area2; and the information provided in MSC-FAL.1/Circ.2 on Questionnaire on information on port and coastal State requirements related to privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships, as well as the other recommendations and guidance developed by the Organization for preventing and suppressing piracy and armed robbery against ships.
1 High Risk Area: an area as defined in the Best Management Practices for Protection against Somalia Based Piracy (MSC.1/Circ.1339), unless otherwise defined by the flag State.

6 Member Governments are urged to bring this circular to the attention of all national agencies concerned with anti-piracy activities, shipowners, ship operators, shipping companies, shipmasters and crews.
7 Member Governments are also urged to take any necessary action to implement, as appropriate, the revised interim guidance given in the annex.
8 Member Governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations with consultative status are invited to bring to the attention of the Committee, at the earliest opportunity, the results of the experience gained from the use of the revised interim guidance so as to assist the Committee in deciding on any action to be taken.
9 MSC.1/Circ.1405/Rev.1 is hereby revoked.

ANNEX
REVISED INTERIM GUIDANCE TO SHIPOWNERS, SHIP OPERATORS AND SHIPMASTERS ON THE USE OF PRIVATELY CONTRACTED ARMED SECURITY PERSONNEL ON BOARD SHIPS IN THE HIGH RISK AREA1
1 Introduction
1.1 The increased threat to commercial shipping by Somalia-based pirates has led to extended use of armed guards and a marked expansion in the number of firms offering armed maritime security services for ships transiting the High Risk Area (HRA). The Organization, whilst not endorsing the use of privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP), understands that shipping companies may find it difficult to identify reliable, professional private providers of armed security.
1.2 The decision on the employment of PCASP on board ships is a complex one for a shipowner. The absence of applicable regulation and industry self-regulation coupled with complex legal requirements governing the legitimate transport, carriage and use of firearms2 gives cause for concern. This situation is further complicated by the rapid growth in the number of private maritime security companies (PMSC) and doubts about the capabilities and maturity of some of these companies. Significant competence and quality variations are present across the spectrum of contractors offering services.
1.3 The purpose of this guidance is to assist shipowners, ship operators and shipmasters considering the use of PCASP on board ships to provide additional protection against piracy.
1.4 It is important to note that flag State jurisdiction and thus any laws and regulations imposed by the flag State concerning the use of PMSC and PCASP apply to their ships. Furthermore it is also important to note that port and coastal States' laws may also apply to such ships.
1.5 The use of PCASP should not be considered as an alternative to Best Management Practices (BMP) and other protective measures. Placing armed guards on board as a means to secure and protect the ship and its crew should only be considered after a risk assessment has been carried out. It is also important to involve the Master in the decision making process.
2 Definitions
High Risk Area: an area as defined in the BMP unless otherwise defined by the flag State.
Private maritime security companies (PMSC): Private contractors employed to provide security personnel, both armed and unarmed, on board for protection against piracy.
