Note: Due to apparent technical problems the MTISC GOG Web Site referenced in the 'Guidelines for Owners, Operators and Masters for Protection against Piracy in the Gulf of Guinea Region' has not yet been launched. However, the MTISC GOG itself is fully operational and all ships operating in the region are encouraged to report by phone or email using the contact details provided in the Guidance.
