PSC to focus on rest

ADVERTISEMENT

The maritime authorities of the Paris and Tokyo Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control will launch a joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) to make sure watchkeeping personnel meet the requirements regarding hours of rest.

 

This three-month inspection campaign will begin Sept. 1.

 

During regular PSC inspections, the deck and engine room watchkeepers’ hours of rest will be verified in more detail, the authorities said. PSC officers will use a checklist of 10 items, focusing attention on the Minimum Safe Manning Document (MSMD) and records of rest.

 

In addition information will be gathered on the watch system, whether the MSMD requires an engineer officer and whether the ship is designated UMS (Periodically Unattended Machinery Space). For this purpose, officers will apply a questionnaire.  

 

It is expected that the Paris and Tokyo MoUs will carry out about 10,000 inspections during the CIC.
