Shiprider`s agreements help fill global maritime policing gaps; Improved cooperation, coordination and interoperability; and strengthening maritime police capacity to more effectively combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (INN ACTIVITIES and other illicit activities). The agreements will complement and strengthen existing agreements with partners such as Australia, New Zealand and France. The agreements allow law enforcement agencies in partner states to ship ships and aircraft from the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy, provided the agreements have authorized them; and allow authorized U.S. ships and aircraft to assist the host country`s law enforcement agencies in maritime surveillance and the boarding of vessels under the supervision and jurisdiction of the official. In general, conduct agreements are enforced by U.S. Coast Guard vessels, aircraft and law enforcement agencies; the U.S. Navy, the host navy and government ships and third-party aircraft, as far as the agreements allow.

Bilateral agreements on the law of the sea promote the sovereignty of the host country by helping the host country enforce its laws and regulations.
