Drills and exercises to test maritime security knowledge and update skills are under way during a national workshop in Montevideo, Uruguay (5 to 8 June).

The National Workshop on International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS Code) Drills and Exercises has been designed to strengthen the technical capability of Designated Authority officials, port security officials and managers with respect to enhancing maritime security through the process of conducting drills and exercises in accordance with the ISPS Code and the relevant IMO guidance, by using the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Drills and Exercises Manual.
The workshop was organized by International Maritime Organization (IMO) under the Global programme for the enhancement of maritime security, using funds provided by the Republic of Korea, and in coordination with the National Maritime authority of Uruguay (Prefectura Nacional Naval).
The Inter-American Committee against Terrorism (CICTE) of the Organization of American States (OAS-CICTE) also participated and collaborated with the organization of the event.
