INDIAN OCEAN HIGH RISK AREA FOR PIRACY TO BE REMOVED ON 1 JANUARY

On 20 December, an article from Hellenic Shipping News reported that on 1 January, the Shipping Industry Indian Ocean High Risk Area (HRA) for piracy will be removed, with the removal of the HRA reflecting a significantly improved piracy situation in the region.  It warns that voyage preparation, threat, and risk assessment as part of following Best Management Practice 5 (BMP5) remain essential.  The article also says that new threat guidance to inform the voyage risk assessments of owners, operators, and charterers will be issued in 2023, and that this will initially focus on the Indian Ocean and the Black Sea and should eventually expand in geographical scope over time.
