What is meaning of security level 1?

At security level 1, the SSP should establish the security measures to control access to the ship, where the following may be applied:

  1. Checking the identity of all persons seeking to board the ship and confirming their reasons for doing so by checking, for example, joining instructions, passenger tickets, boarding passes, work orders, etc.;
  2. In liaison with the port facility, the ship should ensure that designated secure areas are established in which inspections and searching of persons, baggage (including carry-on items), personal effects, vehicles and their contents can take place;
  3. In liaison with the port facility, the ship should ensure that vehicles destined to be loaded on board car carriers, ro–ro and other passenger ships are subjected to search prior to loading, in accordance with the frequency required in the SSP;
  4. Segregating checked persons and their personal effects from unchecked persons and their personal effects;
  5. Segregating embarking from disembarking passengers;
  6. Identifying access points that should be secured or attended to prevent unauthorized access;
  7. Securing, by locking or other means, access to unattended spaces adjoining areas to which passengers and visitors have access; and
  8. Providing security briefings to all ship personnel on possiblethreats, the procedures for reporting suspicious persons, objectsor activities and the need for vigilance.

 At security level 1, all those seeking to board a ship should be liable to search. The frequency of such searches, including random searches, should be specified in the approved SSP and should be specifically approved by the Administration. Such searches may best be undertaken by the port facility in close co-operation with the ship and in close proximity to it. Unless there are clear security grounds for doing so, members of the ship’s personnel should not be required to search their colleagues or their personal effects. Any such search shall be undertaken in a manner which fully takes into account the human rights of the individual and preserves their basic human dignity .

At security level 1, the SSP should establish the security measures to be applied when handling unaccompanied baggage to ensure that unaccompanied baggage is screened or searched up to and including 100%, which may include use of x-ray screening.
