Port state control (PSC) support

Port State Control

We provide support, information and training in PSC matters to prepare you for inspections – and are on your side at all times.

Are you prepared for the next port state control inspection? Or what do you do if your vessel is detained and cannot continue on schedule? You need a reliable partner who supports you when you need it, anywhere in the world.

Our long-standing, high port state control (PSC) performance is testimony to the quality of our services and good cooperation with our customers.

Whether you need support upon detention or want to prevent off-hire due to detention, call on us and we’ll be at your side – regardless of where you are in the world.

Rely on us when detained:

  • We rapidly organise a surveyor to assist you on board
  • We are more familiar with local PSC authorities and can speed up the process

As the world’s largest classification society, we are able to conduct extensive research and constant analysis to evaluate the lessons learned from detentions. This enables us to provide a range of services that support you in keeping your vessel in compliance – so you are best prepared for PSC inspections worldwide at all times.
