Port Security Advisory (1-20)

The Coast Guard’s International Port Security Program has issued Port Security Advisory (PSA 1-20) to update the list of Madagascar port facilities exempted from Conditions of Entry.

In 2009 the Coast Guard determined that the Republic of Madagascar was not maintaining effective antiterrorism measures in its ports with the exception of the port of Toamasina (also known as Tamatave). This Advisory clarifies the exception and aligns it with the IMO Port Numbers listed in the International Maritime Organization’s Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS) database.

This advisory is available on the Coast Guard International Port Security website.
