The Port Authority of Cotonou organized for this year 2023, the traditional simulation exercise of port security.  

Carried out under real conditions, this exercise brought together several management structures of the port infrastructure including the National Navy, the Republican Police, the National Fire Department, SOBEMAP, and many others. The purpose of this exercise is to test the crisis management procedure of the Port Authority of Cotonou, to test the capacity and reactivity of the different actors (external and internal) in charge of the security and safety of the port, in a major crisis situation. 

The Port Authority of Cotonou thus ensures the implementation and efficiency of security measures for ships, cargoes and its personnel, in any situation.  

This simulation is part of the implementation of the preventive actions of the port's security plan and the requirements of security exercises and training included in the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS).
