Port state CIC inspections this fall to focus on emergency systems

ADVERTISEMENT

The Paris and Tokyo MoUs on port state control will conduct a Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on vessel emergency systems and procedures between Sept. 1 and Nov. 30.

The main objectives of this CIC include ensuring that onboard emergency systems are operating properly, that captains and crew understand their assigned duties in emergencies and are prepared to respond appropriately, and that stakeholders have put measures in place to save lives, protect the marine environment and minimize vessel damage in emergencies. 

Port state control officers will assess whether equipment provided on board complies with the relevant Convention, whether officers and crew are qualified and familiar with operations relating to shipboard emergency systems, and whether equipment is properly maintained and functioning.
