The "Advanced Cargo Declaration for ISPS Code" or the global system of information on cargo for the protection of ships and port facilities is a solution of verification and monitoring of international maritime transport in order to prevent any attack and locate the responsibility of each maritime operator in the case of shipping hazardous and dangerous product.
