Description: The Global Maritime Crime Programme (GMCP) of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
(UNODC) provides Member States with technical support to tackle the full range of transnational maritime
crime. Based around the globe, the staff of the Programme provide support in the fight against armed robbery
at sea, piracy the smuggling of migrants by sea, fisheries crime, maritime drug trafficking and smuggling that
funds terrorism.
This Manual brings together the material that GMCP staff have been using to explain the legal framework that
underpins UNODC work in the area of maritime crime. It sets out the legal regime that governs the various
maritime zones and the legal basis for tackling some of the most serious maritime crimes. Finally, it provides
advice on effective boarding, searching and evidence collection on vessels at sea.
The Manual will be used as a training tool in capacity-building work carried out by GMCP, as well as serving
as a useful guide for everyday criminal justice practitioners.
UNODC hopes that all criminal justice professionals, including prosecutors, investigators and those who
enforce the law at sea, will find the Manual a valuable resource.
