Port State Control Checklists

Updated for 2017, The ILO MLC Pocket Checklist (Revision 3) aims to help owners, operators and crew comply with the Marine Labour Convention which comes into force in August 2013. Non compliance with the requirements of the convention will result in port state control (PSC) detentions, so to help reduce the risk of your ship being detained, as a minimum, we strongly recommend that you include the items in this checklist as part of your final checks before the voyage and port entry.
Port State Control detentions due to ISM failures are becoming more common as the authorities are grouping deficiencies together to justify detaining the ship. The objectives of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code are to ensure safety at sea, prevention of human injury or loss of life, and avoidance of damage to the environment and property. The objectives of the ISPS Code are to ensure security of ships and port facilities. The company is responsible for implementing effective safety and security management systems to ensure these objectives are met. By doing this, the risk to the fleet can be minimised and avoid costly fines and Port State Control detentions. Effective implementation of ISM and ISPS will protect the fleet’s reputation and help to get most out of the company’s resources.
The first pocket checklist in the series is designed as an aide-mémoire to supplement owners' operational and maintenance procedures, and should be used in conjunction with other guides in this series. Conveniently organised by distinct ship area, the checklist identifies the top fifty most common causes of ship detention. The pocket checklist is particularly useful when incorporated into pre-arrival checks, to ensure consideration has been given to all areas a PSC inspector will be concerned with.
Updated for 2018, the Marine Pollution Prevention Pocket Checklist can help masters and owners comply with the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships 1973, as amended by MARPOL 73/78. With a detailed list of areas that must be up to standard and covering areas where operational deficiencies are frequently found, it should help to reduce the risk of port state control (PSC) detentions.
