Keeping vessels and maritime facilities safe is of vital importance to the nation’s economic infrastructure. This training video looks at the laws surrounding the maritime Declaration of Security, which are part of the Maritime Transportation Security Act.

Viewers learn a DOS is an agreement between a vessel and facility or two vessels about security responsibilities under the Maritime Transportation Security Act. International port security measures are addressed. The video covers reasons a DOS may be required, what information is required in a DOS, how a DOS is implemented and how long and where records of a DOS must be kept. Viewers learn about specific security activities found on a typical DOS, including communications, alarm signals, reporting, screening of passengers and cargo, access control, monitoring, searching of the vessel or facility, security level changes, response protocol, and performance of security duties. Crew members’ responsibilities are addressed.

Keeping vessels and maritime facilities secure and safe from terrorism is the responsibility of everyone involved in maritime operations. This training video helps people understand the importance of a DOS and why it must be properly administered.
