The revised Guidelines for the preparation of the Cargo Securing Manual(MSC.1/Circ.1353) requires ships constructed on or after 1 January 2015 to have an approved Cargo Safe Access Plan(CSAP) on board, for all areas where containers are secured. 
Existing containerships with the date of keel laying of keel laying prior to 1 January 2015 are subject to the provisions of sections 1.4, 7.1, 7.3 and 8 in Annex 14.
The purpose of these guidelines is to ensure that Cargo Securing Manuals cover all relevant aspects of cargo stowage and securing and to provide a uniform approach to the preparation of Cargo Securing Manual, their layout and content.
