Piracy Reports

 

Reports of actual and attempted attacks by pirates and armed robbers against ships are continuously promulgated via IMO's Piracy and Armed Robbery module within the Organization's Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS) as soon as they are received by the Secretariat from Member States and reporting organizations and entities (subject to registration). Relevant guidance is available within the module in GISIS to enable users to create and download customized reports, e.g. by geographical area or time period.

At its ninety-ninth session in May 2018, the Committee agreed to discontinue the monthly circulars containing reports on incidents of piracy and armed robbery against ships, while maintaining the comprehensive annual reports as part of the series of MSC.4 circulars. However, the Secretariat continues to make monthly reports available for easy reference (below).

In order to provide an overall view of the global threat posed by piracy and armed robbery against ships, since 1982 the Organization has issued 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.  

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.
