Action Date: Immediate
Member Authorities of the Tokyo and the Paris Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control has announced the forthcoming joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Fire Safety.
This inspection campaign will be held for three months, commencing from 1 September 2023 and ending 30 November 2023. The campaign will examine specific areas related to fire safety in conjunction with the regular Port State Control inspection.
Since Fire Safety was the category with the highest detainable ratio for 2022, any ship with deficiencies under this category may be considered for detention. Thus, during this period, PHRS will undertake similar examinations on all surveys/audits to be held onboard of PHRS certified ships. Attached you can find the relevant Checklist of CIC on Fire Safety.
Furthermore, ship-owners and operators are urged to take all necessary actions to be prepared for the forthcoming PSC CIC.
The press release of Paris MoU can be found here in full detail.
