Port State Control CIC (Concentrated Inspection Campaign) - MARPOL Annex VI

A Concentrated inspection campaign will take place between 1 September and 30 November 2018 by the Paris MOU, Tokyo MOU, Indian Ocean MOU and Black Sea MOU port state control (PSC) regimes.

The Check List (the Questionnaire), has been released by Paris MoU and Tokyo MoU. Their aims include establishing the level of compliance with the requirements of MARPOL Annex VI within the shipping industry and creating awareness amongst ship owners and crews about MARPOL Annex VI and the prevention of air pollution. The attached Press Release of 1 August explains the background.

The attached questionnaire shows the 11 questions the CIC will ask. Members should be aware of the areas of scrutiny during this CIC in order that Masters and Chief Engineers can prepare accordingly for PSC inspections.
