The Port State Control’s concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) on MARPOL VI will start on 1 September 2018. With the joint press release from 1 August 2018, Paris and Tokyo MoU published a questionnaire of ten questions. The focus of the CIC is to verify compliance with MARPOL VI requirements.
Relevant for ship owners and managers.
Remark: This is an update of the Technical and Regulatory News issued on 5 June 2018 related to the CIC on MARPOL VI.
The Black Sea and Indian Ocean MoUs will also carry out a CIC on MARPOL VI from 1 September to 30 November 2018.
The goal of the CIC is to check the actual status of ships regarding conformity with air pollution prevention requirements. It also aims to enforce awareness of new maximum limits for sulphur in ship fuel oil, which will enter into force on 1 January 2020.
When deficiencies are found, actions by the Port State Control may vary: from recording a deficiency and instructing the master to rectify it within a certain period of time, to detaining the ship until the deficiencies are rectified.
The full Paris MoU press release and its questionnaire (checklist) for the CIC are attached to this PSC news.
