3 Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) Summer Autumn 2010 SAMI concept evolved; to set up a register of reputable PMSC and establish a Guild for those registered PMSC to set and protect standards. Concurrently interested parties (shipping associations, flag States, insurance industry) lobbied. Dec 10/Jan 11 dramatic increase in piracy incidents in Indian Ocean region, stretch across area and level of violence increases demand for alternative forms of protection intensifies. 11 Apr 2011 – first PMSCs invited to join SAMI – pre-requisite is to be a signatory of ICoC and pay subscription to display commitment.

5 Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) SAMI is INTERNATIONAL – (176 member companies from 37 countries). SAMI is INDEPENDENT – we are an NGO and not for profit organisation. SAMI is IMPARTIAL – No member of the SAMI Staff is aligned or part of a Private Maritime Security Company (PMSC). SAMI is INTEGRATED WITH INDUSTRY – we talk to all areas of the maritime industry.

6 Piracy and the growth of the Private Maritime Security Industry. Background – Iraq 2003 and the significant use of private security to reduce armed forces on the ground. Concern over the use of private armed security guards to protect ships transiting the High Risk Area. Despite valiant efforts by all of the navies involved the naval forces were insufficiently resourced to manage the threat and piracy increased! Owners that had ships taken who had previously not used armed guards went for the armed option.

14 Future of Maritime Security

15 Roles that PMSCs can fulfil? Maritime security is not just about piracy off the coast of East Africa. Maritime security covers a significant range of tasks:

16 Maritime Security: The new growth industry? Commercial Shipping: The volume of World trade being moved by sea is expected to increase by 50% over the next 20 years. Over that same period the Western Navies are going to shrink in size by 30% (RUSI Conf Jul 11). Cruise liner fleet increased in capacity by 50% between (520K people at sea on cruise liners every day of the year) and growth continues. There are more than 4500 Super Yachts, new construction is at capacity and the second hand market is buoyant. Offshore Oil & Gas: The global thirst for oil and gas is unquenchable, prices are rising, ME supply less predictable; pushing the oil & gas industries into more technically challenging and unsafe areas (of the 52 undeveloped countries in the world, 67% have a coastline).

Port Facilities: With the increase in world population (7 Billion 31 st Oct 11 – UN), scarcity of resources, cargoes will become increasingly more valuable and the easiest place to get access to a cargo is in port.

19 Summary Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) Private maritime security industry grew to meet the demand and capability gap left by lack of naval assets. Transits & MSOs. Medical guidance within the ISO PAS Maritime Security is global and growing!
