PSC to target engines maintenance

ADVERTISEMENT

The International Maritime Organization will begin on Sept. 1 a three-month concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) focusing on the safety of propulsion and auxiliary machinery.



The CIC was issued by the areas under guidance of the Paris, Tokyo, Indian Ocean and Black Sea Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs). The Paris MOU covers all the waters of northern Mediterranean and the east coast of Canada.



Port State Control officers will verify compliance with SOLAS Chapter II-1, especially the working order and maintenance of main engines, auxiliary engines, auxiliary equipment and their related alarm systems, according to the alert.



“These installations will be verified in detail for compliance with SOLAS Chapter II-1 during regular PSC inspections and special attention will be given to crew familiarity with safety and emergency procedures,” the alert stated.



Officers will use a 12-question questionnaire during the CIC relating to documentation, main and auxiliary equipment, crew familiarization and operational controls.



Actions for deficiencies may vary from recording a deficiency and instructing the captain to rectify it within a certain period to detaining the ship until serious deficiencies have been rectified.



The CIC ends on Nov. 30. The results of the CIC will be analyzed and findings will be presented to the governing bodies of the Paris, Tokyo, Indian Ocean and Black Sea MOUs.



A similar CIC will take place in the Caribbean during this same time frame.
