New rule for St. Vincent flag

Nov 16, 2014 by Guest Writer

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Maritime Administration has issued Circular No. PSC 033, which requires additional inspections (termed “occasional surveys”) to be carried out for all vessels whose next port of call is within a Paris MOU member country. The circular only applies to vessels if they have been detained by port state control authorities within the last three years.

The administration has stated that a vessel will be deleted from its Registry if an occasional survey is not carried out when required or a vessel is detained twice by a maritime authority member of the Paris MOU within a six-month period.
