Abstract
    The paper summarizes the currently existing regulations and measures to ensure maritime security in the European Union, United States and Internationally, and makes observations regarding the implementation and the consistency of implementation of these measures between all nations involved in the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The paper specifically mentions issues with the supply chain management of container and cargo transport that are hard to manage due to multidisciplinary and multi-jurisdictional nature of the ports. The paper then describes and refers to a number of recommendations and amendments to current policy and procedures that will correct many of existing deficiencies. It stresses the importance of the development of a Community security framework for the supply chain instead of opting for a patchwork approach.
