Safety and security assessment has been increasingly used to support maritime system design and operation.

This presentation will address major challenges and developments in maritime safety and security assessment.

Areas covered include regulatory regimes in maritime safety and security, IMO’s formal safety assessment, sea port security modelling, and piracy related ship operations together with case studies.
