What happens if all necessary information is provided but the member state believes we are not in compliance with the ISPS Code?

If, after receipt of this information, there are clear grounds for believing that the ship is in non-compliance with the ISPS code, port state officers are to attempt to establish communications with and between the ship and its Administration in order to rectify the situation. Should this fail they may take proportionate steps that include: - A requirement to rectify the non-compliance, - A requirement that the ship proceed to a location specified in the country's territorial seas or internal waters, - Inspection of the ship, if it is within their territorial sea, - Denial of entry into port.
