Best Management Practices – Piracy and Armed Robbery - West Africa

The International Group, in partnership with shipping industry associations, have launched new maritime security guidance.  The Best Management Practices (BMP), West Africa, is a new addition to the established BMP series and provides threat mitigation guidance on counter-piracy/armed robbery at sea.  The new BMP should help companies and mariners to risk assess voyages and mitigate external threats to their safety while operating in and around the coast of West Africa, including the Gulf of Guinea. The BMP West Africa is accessible on the websites of all the International Group Clubs and at https://www.maritimeglobalsecurity.org.
