Guidelines for Owners, Operators and Masters for protection against piracy in the Gulf of Guinea region (Version 2, June 2016)

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Piracy and armed robbery (hereafter referred to as piracy) in the Gulf of Guinea region is an established criminal activity and is of increasing concern to the maritime sector. With attacks becoming more widespread and violent, including the increase in kidnapping for ransom, industry has now identified an urgent need to update these Guidelines.

 

Although piracy in the Gulf of Guinea region in many ways differs from that of Somalia based piracy, large sections of the Best Management Practices already developed by industry to help protect against Somalia based piracy are also valid in the Gulf of Guinea region.

 

Consequently, these Guidelines aim to bridge the gap between the advice currently found in BMP4 and the prevailing situation in the Gulf of Guinea region.

 

These guidelines should therefore be read in conjunction with BMP4 and will make reference to BMP4 where relevant. These Guidelines have been developed by BIMCO, ICS, INTERCARGO and INTERTANKO, and are supported by NATO Shipping Centre. A soft copy of BMP4 can be found on the websites of these organisations.
