Tokyo MOU Annual Report On Port State Control In The Asia-Pacific Region - 2011
We are pleased to present theAnnual Report on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific Region 2011.
The Tokyo MOU maintains a good trend of development and achievement of PSC activities. In 2011, member Authorities of the Tokyo MOU carried out a total of 28,627 inspections, which is an increase of 11% over the previous year. In addition, the regional inspection rate has been also increased from 66% to 68%. In collaboration with the Paris MOU, the Tokyo MOU successfully conducted the concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) on structural safety and the Load Lines. The Tokyo MOU continues its efforts to improve the internal system and to enhance the external relationship.
This annual report summarizes the port State control developments and activities of the Tokyo MOU in 2011. Furthermore, the report also includes port State control statistics and analysis which provides the results of inspections carried out by member Authorities during the year.
As observed in the previous Annual Report, the overall detention rate has declined gradually during the past three years. However, more attention needs to be paid to the areas of maintenance of ship and equipment, and development of plans for shipboard operations related to the ISM Code, which have been found as the two most frequent reasons for detentions. With that in mind, the Tokyo MOU will continue to strengthen and to improve measures for eradication of substandard ships so as to promote the safety, security, and protection of the marine environment, and to improve living and working conditions onboard.
