＜要旨＞石油会社国際海事評議会（OCIMF）は2017年4月にTanker Management and Self-Assessment guide（TMSA3）の第3版を発行しました。2018年1月1日以降TMSA2に代わり、タンカー船主は新しい自己評価手順に従う必要があります。TMSA最新版では新しい要素として、海上保安（Elemen 13）を導入しています。その要素は「サイバーセキュリティを含むすべての企業活動をカバーする特定のセキュリティ脅威に対応し、リスクを低減するための方針と手順の確立と維持」を目的としています。そのため、サイバー・リスクにも対応するセキュリティ計画を立て、陸側拠点、船舶そして人員を対象とする必要があります。
OCIMF published the third edition of its Tanker Management and Self-Assessment guide (TMSA3) in April 2017. As of 1 January 2018, this will replace the TMSA2 and tanker owners will be required to follow the new self-assessment procedure.
So are there any major changes?
Well actually, yes. The latest TMSA version introduces an entirely new element – Maritime Security (element 13). The new element aims “to establish and maintain policies and procedures in order to respond to and mitigate identified security threats covering all company activities including cyber security.”
In complying with the aim, security plans should be put in place, which also address cyber security risks, and should cover shored-based locations, vessels and personnel.
Are there any tools available to help tanker members comply with the Maritime Security element?
Yes, resources are available and the best thing is they are free!
IET Standards in conjunction with the Department for Transport have created a comprehensive code of practice for cyber security onboard ships. This code follows on from previous work the Department for Transport has done on port cyber security.
Additionally, an industry working group (which included OCIMF) have created Guidelines on Cyber Security onboard Ships.
What other changes are there?
Elements 6, 6A and 10 have all had revisions, with element 10 now incorporating the OCIMF Energy Efficiency and Fuel Management paper that had previously been a supplement to TMSA2. Additionally TMSA3 also has 19 more KPIs than TMSA2 showing the focus on continuous improvement.
