Assessment of ISPS Code Compliance at Ports Using Cognitive Maps

The International Ship and Port facility Security (ISPS) Code was developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as an execution framework to ensure the high level of security measures applicable to ships and port facilities. Besides contributions of the ISPS Code towards security improvement, additional bureaucracy (i.e. documentation, certification, training, expenses etc.) and serious shortfalls have appeared during the implementation process. This paper explores the ISPS Code practice at ports based on a cognitive mapping approach. The outcomes of this research can be proposed to international maritime authorities in order to enhance the existing concept and regulatory compliance of the ISPS Code in respect to industrial feedback.
