Reports on acts of piracy and armed robbery against ships
1 Reports of actual and attempted attacks by pirates and armed robbers against ships
are continuously promulgated via the Piracy and Armed Robbery module of the Global
Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS) as soon as they are received by the
Secretariat from Member States and reporting organizations and entities.
2 Additionally, the Secretariat continues to make monthly reports available on the IMO
website ( https://www.imo.org/en/OurWork/Security/Pages/Piracy-Reports-Default.asp ) for
ease of reference. Relevant guidance is available within the GISIS Piracy and Armed Robbery
module to assist users to create and download customized reports, e.g. by geographical area
or time period.
