New Procedures for Port State Control (PSC) 29.04.2018 22:08

In order to help ship owners and operators to deal with Port State Control (PSC) inspections our company IBICON suggest You the present Information Bulletin.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has released new Resolution A.1119(30) on Procedures for Port State Control. The procedures were adopted on 6 December 2017 and revoke Resolution A.1052(27) on Procedures for Port State Control, 2011. The new resolution updates procedures to take account of amendments to IMO instruments that have entered into force, or have become effective, since the adoption of Resolution A.1052(27).

The resolution is intended to provide basic guidance on the conduct of port state control inspections in order to provide consistency in how such inspections are carried out and in the recognition of deficiencies of a ship, its equipment or its crew.

Where a port state exercises control based on the International Labour Organization (ILO) Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, as amended (MLC 2006), guidance on the conduct of those inspections is given in the ILO publication “Guidelines for port state control officers carrying out inspections under the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006”.

The definition of ‘valid certificates’ has been updated to recognise that certificates may be issued electronically or on paper. Further information is given in section 2.2 and references the “Guidelines for the use of electronic certificates (FAL.5/Circ.39/Rev.2)”.

Appendix 7 now includes additional paragraphs on enclosed space entry and rescue drills and emergency steering drills. Appendix 8, which contains guidelines for port state control officers on the ISM Code, has been updated.

Appendix 11 has been significantly changed, providing guidelines to port state control officers on the certification of seafarers, manning and hours of rest.

It is recommended that shipowners and managers raise the awareness of masters and officers regarding the Procedures on Port State Control, 2017.

In order to prevent PSC deficiencies and reduce the risk of ship's IBICON offers services for the development and updating of PSC inspection procedures.
