New PSC inspection regime (Editorial 27th January 2010)
An aide-memoire to guide masters, owners and operators through the procedures for meeting the new Paris MoU inspection regime is being distributed to Members this week.
While detailed information on the new regime is available via the Paris MoU website (www.parismou.org), we believe a brief checklist of the actions to be taken prior to entering Paris MoU waters will prove invaluable to busy masters and managers.
The principal tasks to be undertaken prior to vessel entry in Paris MOU region are:
Determine ship risk profile from online calculator
Determine company performance from online calculator
Note when vessel was last inspected in the region
Establish time window of inspection according to ship risk profile
Ascertain if vessel is eligible for inspection and, if so, which type of inspection
Identify vessel selection scheme
Note type of inspection vessel eligible for
Is there a possibility vessel eligible for additional inspection
If vessel is eligible for expanded inspection, comply with reporting obligations and notify Port State at port of call 72 hours and 24 hours before arrival
Ensure sufficient time in operating schedule for expanded inspection to be carried out (typically eight hours for a Capesize bulk carrier by two Port StateControl Officers – PSCOs).
Assisting Members with preparation for efficient co-operation with Port State Control inspections is just one of the strengths of the Club's dedicated ship inspection team.
This Port State Control content includes checklists jointly produced by the Club and Lloyds Register to address particular potential areas of operational deficiency that attract the attention of Port State Control inspections.
Any Members with queries regarding Port State Control issues should contact eitherKarl Lumbers
