International Maritime Security (IMS) is a leading global expert in the provision and implementation of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, and associated national and regional instruments.

Since 1986, IMS has been retained as security consultants by over 500 maritime companies, and in 1996 was commissioned by the International Council of Cruise Lines (ICCL) to prepare the model generic Ship Security Plan (SSP) for all its members. The US Marine Safety Centre accepted this SSP as meeting in full the provisions of the US Coast Guard Federal Register Regulations.

IMS has been appointed as a Recognised Security Organisation (RSO) by the Governments of Ghana, Greenland, Greece, Antigua & Barbuda, Norway, Malta, Ireland, Morocco, Latvia, Denmark, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Mauritania to carry out Port Facility Security Assessments and produce Port Facility Security Plans.

IMS is owned by Risktec Solutions Ltd, which is a well-established, independent and specialist risk management consulting and training company, which is part of the TUV Rheinland Group. Risktec Solutions assists clients in major hazard industries as well as the commercial and public sectors to manage health, safety, security, environmental and business risk.
