JABATAN LAUT SEMENANJUNG MALAYSIA IBU PEJABAT LAUT PETI SURAT 12 42007 PELABUHAN KLANG SELANGOR

<Restricted Level> This guide presents a template that could be used by Port Administrator to prepare a Port Area Security Plan. The template is provided as guidance only and each Port Administrator should consider the suitability of it for their local circumstances prior to adopting it for their own use. Text in Italics used in each section of the template describes the type of information expected under the subject headings. It is suggested that Port Administrator consider:• What information the Port Administrator wishes to present to the Designated Authority in their plan? • Who will be covered by the plan and who will use it? For example, the Port Administrator will be covering the operations of all the Port Facilities in their plan. • Is the information presented likely to be changed frequently during the period of the plan? (if so, more generic information that is not a regulatory requirement may be needed)

Section 2 - Scope
The Port Area Security Plan requires to cover all matters of ship/port interface: a) that are to be conducted within the security designated port area; and b) that are not covered by the port facility security plans in the security designated port area but which conducts operations within or in connection with, the security designated port area. 2.1 Port Administrator This section should describe what operations are covered in the plan. This section should also make reference to the Map of the Security Designated Port Area, which must be attached to the Plan. refer attachment 1. Port Administrator may wish to expand the coverage of their plan to include related operations and activities. 2.2 Port Facility Operators This section should provide a general overview of the Port Facility Operators within the security designated port area. It should clearly indicate the Port Facility Operators and their operations covered under this security plan and should be used to explain the scope of the Port Facility operations 2.3 Port Marine Service Providers This section should provide a general overview of the Port Marine Service Providers within the security designated port area. It should clearly indicate the Port Marine Service Providers and their operations covered under this security plan and should be used to explain the scope of the Port Marine Service Providers. The Port Administrator shall be responsible in ensuring that the Port Marine Service Providers have an adequate knowledge of the ISPS Code especially on the requirements of the Declaration of Security.

Section 3 - Consultation, Communication and Coordination
Outcome - Effective consultation, communication and coordination of security measures and procedures across the security designated port area. The Port Area Security Plan shall set out a mechanism for consultation: a) Between the port Administrator and each of the stakeholders conducting operations within the security designated port area, for the purpose of coordinating their securityrelated activities; and b)between the port administrator and its personnel and contractors (or their representatives) regarding security measures and procedures to be implemented. 3.1 Port - Area Communication and Consultation It is critical that the operation of the Port Area Security Plan does not hinder or obstruct compliance with another Security Plan operating within the security designated port area. Similarly, Port Facility Security Plan should compliment the Port Area Security Plan. In this section of the plan the Port Administrator must explain the procedures taken to consult with the other stakeholders, within the security designated port area. This could be achieved via the formation of a Port Area Security Committee or other consultative forum prior to the development of individual security plans. Port Area Security Committee, chaired by the Port Administrator, should include representatives from port area security officer, port facility security officer, government institutions – immigration, customs, quarantine, marine department, police, etc; port marine service providers, facility owner / facility operator and facility users – key ship operators or agents. 3.2 Port Employees and Contractors As port employees and contractors will need to assist with the implementation of security measures and procedures, this section of the Port Area Security Plan must detail the mechanism by which the Port Administrator will consult with Port employees and contractors regarding security measures and procedures to be implemented. 3.3 Notification of a Change in Maritime Security Level and Security Directions From time to time, the Designated Authority may advise that the Security Level has changed. In this section of the Plan, the Port Administrator must describe how they will communicate this information to the Port Facilities covered by the Port Area Security Plan. 3.4 Declaration of Security The Declaration of Security (DOS) is an agreement between a Port Administrator and a Ship on the types of security measures and procedures that will be put in place upon arrival of that ship in port. It outlines who has responsibility for providing security measures required under the agreement. The requirements for a DOS can be found in Regulation 5 of Part A of the ISPS Code. A Port Area Security Plan must identify the circumstances where a Port Administrator will request a DOS with a visiting ship. For example when a ship at a higher security level wishes to enter port. The plan must also detail the procedures for negotiating the security measures and responsibilities in the DOS and must explain how the measures in the DOS will be implemented to ensure that both the Security Plan for the Ship and the Port Area Security Plan 8

<Restricted Level> and the DOS are complied with. A template for use between a port and ship is at attachment 3. The template has been adopted from Part B Appendix 1, of the ISPS code, pages 99 to 101. When a DOS is required during a ship to ship operations, the Port Area Security Officer (PASO) or the Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) is responsible for the signing of the DOS when the ship to ship operation occurs within the Security Designated Port Area. The captain of the port marine service provider will be responsible for the signing of the DOS if the ship to ship operations occur outside of the Security Designated Port Area

Section 4 - Operation of the Plan
4.1 Review and Audit Outcome - Effective audit and review procedures that ensure the security measures and procedures are adequate and that the plan has been implemented correctly. This section should be used to explain how the Port Administrator will ensure that the plan is effective and adequate and that the plan has been implemented correctly. The Port Area Security Plan must include: 4.1.1 4.1.2 4.1.3 4.1.4 A schedule of Internal and External Security Plan Audits. The circumstances in which a Security Plan Review will be conducted. This must include after a maritime transport security incident. The procedures for conducting a Security Plan Audit. This must include a procedure for selecting independent auditors. The Procedures for conducting a Security Plan Review. This must include a procedure for consultation to be undertaken to ensure security measures and procedures are adequate and the plan appropriately implemented.

It is suggested that for ease of maintaining audit and review procedures that they should be referenced in this section and specific details included at attachment 5. 4.2 Drills and Exercises The Port Area Security Plan shall include procedures for conducting drills and exercises associated with the plan. This should include a timetable of when the drills are to be conducted and how records of the results of drills and exercises will be kept and secured. 4.3 Responsibilities

The Port Area Security Plan must detail the specific duties and responsibilities of the Port Area Security Officer and other security personnel. For example the duties and responsibilities of any maritime security guards employed or contracted by the Port Administrator. A Table to record information on the responsibilities of security related positions could be formatted as follows:Position Responsibilities <insert the <insert the responsibilities > position title> Port Area Security Officer Port Facility Security Officer Security Guards

10

<Restricted Level> 4.4 Knowledge and Training Outcome - Port Area Security Officers and other security personnel have received appropriate training or have sufficient knowledge to perform their duties. The Port Administrator must ensure that personnel with responsibility for security have adequate knowledge, or have received appropriate training to be able to carry out their duties: • the knowledge, skills and other requirements for the security related aspects of their position; • the training or qualifications that satisfy those requirements; and • the training that must be given to such personnel. The table below can be used to record the training requirements for each position. Position Required Knowledge or Training <Insert the <insert the knowledge and training requirements for the position Position title> here Port Area Knowledge / Skills Ability to conduct security patrols Security Ability to maintain access control points for pedestrians and Guards vehicles Ability to monitor and control peoples’ behaviour. Self defence and restraint skills Qualifications

Each plan should also include or make reference to a training register to record which staff have received appropriate training or have sufficient knowledge to perform their duties. Details of the training should be documented as well as how the Port Administrator has determined they have the required knowledge to undertake their security duties.

Section 5 - Security Measures and Procedures
5.1 Port Area Security Assessment Outcome - An understanding of security risks and possible preventive security measures and procedures to treat risks that have been identified. Each port area security plan must include a security assessment. The completed security assessment must be attached to the plan at attachment 4. 5.2 Security Measures and Procedures

Outcomes • Effective measures and procedures to treat security risks and to control access within the security designated port area • Effective measures and procedures for implementing security directions and for responding to maritime transport security incidents or other security matters. This section must be used to identify each security measure and/or procedure to be implemented under the plan. However the specific details of each security measure and/or procedure could be included in Attachment 5 - Details of Security Measures and Procedures. It is expected that each Port Area Security Plan will include security arrangements to treat a range of different security risks and that individual measures and procedures may address a number of the risks that have been identified by the Port Administrator. As the Port Area Security Plan will cover the operations of the Port Facilities in its port area, this section should identify who is responsible for the measures and procedures of its respective area. The following items below should be addressed in the Security Measures and Procedures. In general it would be expected that measures and procedures addressing these items would be listed for maritime security levels 1, 2 and 3. a) Measures to prevent unauthorised access to the port designated security areas established, or ship security area declared in the security designated port area These measures could include but are not limited to: • Clear identification of local water-side security area access prevention arrangements e.g. arrangements with marine police regarding patrols and response; • procedures for reporting unauthorised access into Port Designated Security Areas; • Land based observation of water-side security areas. b) Procedures for responding to security threats or breaches of security, including provisions for maintaining critical operations in the port area; These procedures could include but are not limited to: • Procedures for the handling of bomb and other threats.

12

<Restricted Level> c) Procedures for responding to any Security Directions given by the Designated Authority; The Designated Authority will on occasions issue certain security directions. The Port Administrator will be required to pass on the security direction to other stakeholders who operate within the port. These procedures could include but are not limited to: • Management procedures that will be taken to ensure that a security direction is implemented as soon as possible after the direction is given. • Procedures for communicating the security direction within the Security Designated Port and externally where necessary. d) Procedures for evacuation of the port in case of security threats or breaches of security; This should include reference to a current evacuation plan. The evacuation plan does not need to be included with the port area security plan. e) Procedures for reporting occurrences which threaten the security of the port area; The Port Area Security Plan shall have procedures for reporting occurrences which threaten the security of the port to • the Designated Authority • The Royal Malaysian Police; and • And where applicable to a person in control of part of the port area, or a person who conducts operations in the port or the ship operator or master of a security designated ship. These measures could include but are not limited to: • Procedures for reporting of Security Incidents as above • Internal procedures for employees to report security incidents to management or the Port Area Security Officer. • Procedures for raising the awareness of staff of their responsibilities for reporting incidents. f) Procedures for responding in case the ship security alert system of a ship in the security designated port area has been activated. The ship security alert system of a ship may be activated in the event of a security incident occurring on board the ship. This alert will be received by the ship operator and the alert will be passed on to the appropriate authorities in the country where the ship is located. The Port Administrator may be asked to assist the authorities in dealing with a ship that has activated its security alert system. The security plan should include measures to ensure that the Port Administrator will cooperate with authorities in dealing with this situation. 5.2.1 Maritime Security Level 1

In this section, the Port Area Security Plan must identify the specific security measures and procedures to be undertaken or implemented by the Port Administrator for Maritime security level 1. Maritime Security level 1 measures are those that will be in operation at all times within the port.

Attachment 1 - Map of the Security Designated Port Area
The map showing the boundaries of the security designated port area and outlining the boundaries of port facilities within the port must be of a suitable scale and size. For large ports, it may be necessary to provide a series of maps to enable enough detail to be provided. To define the boundaries of a security designated port area, port administrator will also need to consult with port facility operator and other stakeholders to determine that the area adequately covers areas of land and water that are to be security controlled. It is also expected that the area defined take into account the results of the port area security assessment.
