Is a ship visit required before an SSP is approved?
There is currently no requirement in either SOLAS XI-2 or the ISPS Code for this to take place. MCA have based their maritime security process on the basis of a single ship visit for the verification. However, for training purposes a limited number of ship visits will be made to liaise with CSO regarding SSA and SSP.
