The STCW Convention and Code as amended by the Manila Amendments (2010) contain new requirements regarding security training. This training is required by all personnel employed or engaged on-board ships to which the ISPS Code applies.

On 01 January 2014, STCW Regulation VI/6 entered into force. This regulation requires all seafarers on ships subject to ISPS Code, to have received security related training and instruction relevant to their assigned duties on-board.

The provisions cover the following subjects:
- Security related familiarization training;
- Security awareness training for seafarers without designated security duties; and
- Security training for seafarers with designated security duties.
