What is it about?

The amendments to the 1988 Protocol for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Fixed Platforms by the 2005 Protocol, reflect those in the 2005 Protocol to the 1988 SUA Convention, primarily broadening the range of offences under the original Protocol. The SUA Convention and Protocol of 1988 are in place to ensure that participating states take appropriate action against persons committing unlawful acts against ships. A significant amendment to the 1988 Convention is the inclusion of the offence of acting to unlawfully and intentionally to intimidate a population, or compel a government or international organisation to do or abstain from doing any act.

Why is it relevant?

The Protocol, encourages trade in ratifying states by implementing further security measures to prevent the unlawful acts which otherwise hinder trade.

Additional Information

The 2005 Protocol requires ratification from a minimum of three States, which are also party to the 2005 SUA Convention. However, it cannot come into force unless the 2005 SUA Convention is already in force. Neither instrument has yet entered into force.
