The threat of a bomb or IED - Improvised Explosive Device on board a ship is a significant security concern for any shipping company. Ships can be highly vulnerable to such potential threats due to the complexity of their structures, which can offer endless opportunities to conceal suspicious objects. In addition, it is not always possible to ensure systematic control of access to people, visitors, passengers, stakeholder representatives, baggage, stores, spare parts and cargo on board, especially during routine operations and in the light of smaller and less well-trained crews.
