On May 30, Ryan attended the U.S. Coast Guard’s annual Alternative Security Program (ASP) Workshop at the American Chemistry Council in Washington, D.C. NAEGA, along with the National Grain and Feed Association, administers an ASP for facilities covered under the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA). The ASP provides an alternative way for facilities to comply with the MTSA. All NAEGA members are open to join the ASP.
This year’s workshop included presentations by U.S. government personnel on compliance with MTSA, including information on the planned technology enhancements to the TWIC card, roles and responsibilities of Area Maritime Security Committees, cyber risk management, and new compliance standards for Alternative Security Plan users.
Please contact Ryan if you would like more information on the Workshop or are interested in participating in the NAEGA-NGFA ASP.
