Furthermore, dr. Pavliček also included Rovinj Port Authority and the Port of Rijeka Authority in the field research. Dr. Pavliček met and interviewed on the basis of a structured questionnaire the marina managers, marina dock-staff and marina personnel responsible for the functioning of the marina security systems. Likewise, he interviewed the representatives and the staff of the port authorities in the ports of Rovinj and Rijeka responsible for the security systems and for the implementation of the ISPS standards prescribed under the International Ship and Port Security Code of the SOLAS convention and by the Seagoing Ships and Ports Security Protection Act of the Republic of Croatia in those two ports open to international and public traffic. The results of this research will be elaborated in detail in a written academic paper on the development of security standards in Croatian marinas which dr. Pavliček is preparing for the final project conference to be held in November 2018 in the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
