Chapter Summary

This chapter considers tools which States have employed in order to be in a better position to combat new threats to maritime security, and thus provides a few of the more important examples of control and monitoring regimes devised as a result of the changing security environment. A port State has the right to control access to and close its ports and exercise jurisdiction over events, people and things within its port is undisputed. The current challenge is to prevent threats from materializing and, thus, the key issue relates to the efficiency or otherwise of the current legal regime in enabling a port State to detect such threats, thus allowing it to take the required and permitted action before it occurs. Possibly the most obvious threat to the security and safety of any port comes in the form of containerized cargo.

Keywords: containerized cargo; maritime security; port State
