Port Entry Permission System to be Enforced in Korean Ports

Skuld P&I updates members. 

Advisory to Members

Please be advised that amendments to the “International Ship and Port Facility Security Act” and “Ship’s Port Entry and Departure Enforcement Act” passed the Korean Cabinet Council on 2 August 2016.  These amendments were taken as a measure to strengthen port security in the light of a recent increase in security incidents such as foreign crew disembarking vessels without required permission (i.e. shore pass) etc., and the rapidly increasing threat of international terrorism.
The amendment includes application of a “Port Entry Permission System”, which the P&I Club and the Members should take note of.
