Launch of Concentrated Inspection Campaign by Tokyo MOU
The Member Authorities of Tokyo and Paris MOU on PSC will launch a joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Stability.
The campaign will be held for three months from 1 September 2021.
The purpose of the campaign on ship’s stability in general is:
- To confirm that ship’s crew are familiar with assessing the actual stability condition before departure of the ship and on the voyage.
- To create awareness among ship’s crew and owners about the importance of the actual stability condition of the ship.
- To verify that the ship complies with intact stability requirements under the relevant IMO instruments.
PSC Officer will use a pre-defined questionnaire to assess that information and equipment provided onboard complies with the relevant conventions, and the master and officers are familiar with operation relating to stability and the equipment is properly maintained and functioning.
Therefore, please carefully check the contents of this questionnaire on each ship and prepare for PSC.
The contents of this checklist is extremely useful for voyage safety.
We recommend that you use this list regularly during the voyage or post it on the bridge to make effective use of it.
