USCG Port Security Advisory on Iran

20 March 2008

Further to the London Club Website News article of 11 March, the US Coast Guard (USCG) has now issued Port Security Advisory (03-08) by which Iran has been added to the growing list of countries which the USCG has determined are not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures.

The USCG has imposed conditions of entry, effective from 2 April 2008, on vessels wishing to enter a US port having made a recent call in Iran.

A copy of the latest Advisory is attached and readers can also monitor developments via the USCGs website, which can be accessed by clicking here.
