The sea is a strategic route in international trade, so it must be free from the threat of crime such as piracy on ships. Usually, poverty is the driving force behind ship piracy. In 2016, there were 3 times the hijacking of Indonesian-flagged vessels in Philippine waters carried out by terrorist groups. This is the background for the formation of cooperation between ASEAN leaders known as the ASEAN Convention on Counter Terrorism (ACCT), the convention on the fight against terrorism. The purpose of this paper is to examine the arrangement of ship piracy in the waters of the Philippines and Indonesia based on the ASEAN Convention on Counter Terrorism (ACCT). Efforts to deal with and prevent piracy from ships which must be carried out by the Philippines and Indonesia are based on ACCT, which are contained in Article 6 of ACCT. However, only a few points were implemented by the Philippines and Indonesia, namely: points a, b, c, d, e, g, h, and m. In addition, member states must resolve disputes peacefully in the event of differences in interpretation or application of the provisions in the ACCT.
