The Port State Control of states within the Caribbean Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will launch a new Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) starting on the 1st September 2013 and will last for three months
The CIC is the Caribbean MOUs first inspection campaign and will focus on ensuring vessels visiting Caribbean MOU countries are fully compliant with MARPOL Annex I, regulation 14 which covers the operability of oil filtering equipment systems and the arrangements for handling sludge.
During the regular PSC inspection, officers will inspect the vessel’s oil filtering equipment, IOPP Certificate, Oil Record Book, maintenance records and other documents in order to verify compliance with the MARPOL Regulations.
The CIC is expected to last for three months, starting at the beginning of September and finishing at the end of November.
