PSA will do what it takes to provide a safe and secure port. It will continue to focus on the following 4 aspects:
1. Leverage on Technology
- Develop the Access Control and Electronic Security (ACES) system to support the security service provider and all staff to raise their security preparedness.
2. Cooperate with Security Agencies
- Work closely with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) and Singapore Police Force (SPF) on the regulatory requirements, baseline security measures and best practices.
- Comply with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO)'s International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code.
- In the pilot batch of 8 companies certified under the Singapore Customs' Secure Trade Partnership Programme, which is consistent with World Customs Organisation's SAFE Framework of Standards to secure and facilitate global trade, it will support Singapore Customs’ initiatives such as the Cargo Targeting System (CTS), Container Security Initiative (CSI) for US-bound goods and Radiation Detection Initiative (RDI) for export containers.
3. Change Mindset
- Develop a generative culture towards security through training, sensitizing, drills and exercises. All staff and port users will eventually be trained to adopt the 3Rs’ approach of “Recognise”, “Report” and “Resolve” any security threat through the Threat-Oriented Persons Screening Integrated System (TOPSIS) 2.0. Course.
4. Collaborate with Industry
- Keep abreast on security initiatives, standards and technological developments and collaborate with the global industry players and foreign government bodies to promote a safe and secure global supply chain.
