  Seminar on Maritime Security Measures for Non-SOLAS Vessels

PURPOSE
The main purpose of this seminar is to provide (1) international insights regarding the Conference Resolution 7, which was adopted on December 12, 2002,
(2) discussion of whether measures are in fact necessary for such ships, and
(3) what kinds of measures could be considered on a case by case basis, including regional approaches.
At this seminar, maritime leaders will focus on these issues, and through individual presentations and a panel discussion, help us understand potential maritime security measures for non-SOLAS vessels.
