Concentrated Inspection Campaigns (CICs) 2021

Concentrated Inspection Campaigns (CICs) 2021 28.06.2021 11:44

The Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Stability in General that had been announced jointly by several MoUs (Paris MoU, Tokyo MoU, Black Sea MoU, Indian MoU, Mediterranean, Riyadh, and Vina del Mar MoUs) for 2020 had to be postponed due to COVID-19.

This is now commencing from 1 September to 30 November 2021.

The CIC will focus on:
1. Stability documentation (Stability Booklet/Loading manuals etc.)
2. Loading calculations (Loading computer and software/ Loading documents)
3. Responsible officers’ familiarization with the above
4. Ship Organization to respond to emergencies which require stability calculations (grounding/flooding/cargo list etc.)


The questionnaire that is expected to be published at the beginning of August 2021 to be used by the PSCO will mainly relate to operational issues and the familiarization of these by the Master and Officers. During the inspection, PSCOs might ask to show and explain the stability calculation for the current voyage and if approved conditions of stability are available.


The following recommendations are made:
1. Check if all required stability systems are installed, available and approved, where required.
2. Check if stability calculations for the current voyage are carried out and documented as required.
3. Evaluate the effectiveness of familiarization of the Master and officers in charge.
4. Familiarize the crew with the PSC CIC checklist when it becomes published.


On 17June 2021 (MEPC 76), the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted amendments to MARPOL Annex VI, which consists of new regulations 23 and 25 – the introduction of the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and regulation 28 - the requirement to demonstrate operational carbon intensity reduction through the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII).


Equasis and EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) have published the Report of the world’s merchant fleet in 2020.



IBICON provides information from the Department of Transport about preparations to be made by ship operators and verifiers in order to comply with the emissions data reporting required under the legislation underpinning the UK MRV regime.

The new Guide for Ammonia-Fueled Vessels sets out Classification design criteria for the arrangements, construction, installation and survey of machinery, equipment and systems for vessels operating with ammonia as fuel to minimize risks to the vessel, crew and the environment.
