What is Piracy & Armed Robbery against Ships?
What to do if you encounter an incident?

ReCAAP ISC's periodic reports help the maritime community combat piracy and sea robbery in Asia by by sharing detailed information of the incidents such as locations, modus operandi and good practices, in order to raise awareness on the risks and strengthen safety measures.

The ReCAAP ISC guidebooks are developed in consultation with shipping industry and maritime law enforcement agencies to help prevent and deter piracy and armed robbery against ships in Asia.
