Piracy Reports


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In order to provide an overall view of the global threat posed by piracy and armed robbery against ships, since 1982 the Organization issues incident reports on such acts and attempted acts. The reports are based on data and information submitted by IMO Member Governments as well as appropriate regional and international organizations.  

The reports, which include among other things, the names and a description of ships attacked, position and date/time of incidents, consequences to the crew, ship or cargo, and actions taken by the crew and coastal authorities, are circulated monthly, followed by a comprehensive annual report, published at the beginning of the second quarter of the subsequent year. Additional information regarding acts and attempted acts of piracy and armed robbery against ships is publicly available (subject to registration) in IMO's Piracy and Armed Robbery module within the Organization's Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS).

Please note that acts and attempted acts of piracy and armed robbery against ships are classified separately in the reports, with piracy reported as acts or attempted acts, which occur in international waters and armed robbery against ships reported as acts or attempted acts, which occur within a State's territorial waters.
