Mandatory ISPS Port Facility Exercise (MIPE)
Testing of the PFSP will be carried out at the client's location as an exercise, and may include participation of relevant authorities, local emergency units, company or ship security officers, journalists and relatives.
The exercise will improve the general understanding of the plan among the port facility personnel and should be carried out at least once a year (ISPS code 18.6 Part B). The port/port facility will receive a report based on the results of the exercise. The report should be attached to the PFSP.
The PFSO is responsible for the necessary follow-up on the exercise.
