This chapter examines ship and port facility security and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea 1974 (SOLAS)-a landmark treaty that is key to constructing and maintaining a global system of oceans governance. The SOLAS Convention sets forth the major provisions on ship and port security for ships on international voyages. SOLAS, with its 1978 protocol and many amendments-including the International Safety Management Code (ISM Code) and the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code)-as well as the terms of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), contain comprehensive measures for securing ship and shore installations.
