Info sécurité internationale

The ISPS-Code was implemented by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in the wake of 9/11 attacks.

As annex to the SOLAS Convention (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea), the ISPS Code is applicable for vessels and terminals and went into force on July 1, 2004.

Long before that date we were able to certify our vessels with ISPS.

Please find here the International Ship Security Certificate (ISSC) for each of our own vessels.


Better protection and safety for your cargo during transit with the Hapag-Lloyd seal policy.

All full containers moving under a Hapag-Lloyd Bill of Lading must be delivered with a High Security Seal (HSS) complying with the current applicable versions of ISO 17712 standards.

Supply chain security begins at the point of origin including application of a high security seal immediately upon completion of the stuffing operation. After securely stuffing and sealing a container please make sure that the seal number is provided on the shipping instructions forwarded to Hapag-Lloyd.

If a container arrives at the port without a high security seal, Hapag-Lloyd reserves the right to refuse acceptance for shipment. Any additional costs associated with this will be charged to the customer. In this case our organisation will make contact with the customer.

In case of further questions, please contact your local Hapag-Lloyd office.
