Vessels must: • Implement measures per the ship’s security plan equivalent to Security Level 2; • Ensure that each access point to the ship is guarded and that the guards have total visibility of the exterior (both landside and waterside) of the vessel while the vessel is in ports in the above country. Guards may be provided by the ship’s crew, however additional crewmembers should be placed on the ship if necessary to ensure that limits on maximum hours of work are not exceeded and/or minimum hours of rest are met, or provided by outside security forces approved by the ship’s master and Company Security Officer; • Attempt to execute a Declaration of Security; • Log all security actions in the ship’s log; E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
