The port is ISPS compliant. It is reported that the port and the exclusive economic zone in the bay are to be protected by aerial patrolling by the air force, in addition to patrolling by navy vessels, both over the port's outer anchorage as well as the surrounding villages along the port channel of Karnaphuli River by air force helicopters. The Coastguard will be equipped with two speedboats to follow up air surveillance. There are also plans to install a container scanning facility.
