Port State Control to Run Concentrated Inspection Campaigns on MARPOL Annex VI

Port State Control regimes have decided to focus their inspections on ship emissions. The Paris MOU (27 countries), Tokyo MOU (20 countries), Indian Ocean MOU (20 countries) and Black Sea MOU (6 countries) port state control (PSC) regimes have agreed to focus on the prevention of air pollution by ships during their forthcoming concentrated inspection campaigns (CICs). The CICs will be carried out between 1 September 2018 and 30 November 2018 and the Port State Control Officers (PSCOs) will pay particular attention to visiting ships’ compliance with MARPOL Annex VI during regular PSC inspections. The Tokyo MOU and Paris MOU released a press release today along with the CIC checklist/questionnaire to be used by attending PSCOs.
