The Directorate would like to draw the attention of all concerned to a PSC Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) that will be launched by the Paris MoU in conjunction with the Tokyo, Black Sea and Mediterranean MoUs. The Campaign will commence on 1st September and run for three months until the end of November 2017.
Whilst the campaign will affect all vessels subject to port State control under the above mentioned MoUs, all concerned should pay particular attention to the following areas to ensure compliance:

  • VDR
  • AIS
  • Passage Plans
  • Emergency Steering Gear
  • Navigational Signals

Appended is a list of questions that will help in the preparation for this additional inspection. Also included are references to international guidelines and performance standards which should be readily available.
It is the responsibility of all concerned to take the necessary actions to ensure that these areas are in order prior to entry into port. It is also expected that all concerned make every effort towards attaining the ultimate objective of ensuring safety of life at sea and security, and prevention of marine pollution.
The cooperation and assistance of all parties concerned is therefore solicited.
