News: New maritime security guidance for companies and mariners operating in West Africa

31 March 2020

The International Group of P&I Clubs, in partnership with shipping industry associations, have launched new maritime security guidance.

The Best Management Practices 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 in the attachment and on the Maritime Global Security website.
