The Paris MoU and Tokyo MoU have published details of their Concentrated Inspection Campaign for 2019 for Emergency Systems and Procedures.

The inspection campaign will be held over three months, from 1 September 2019 to 30 November 2019 and will target compliance on all vessels, regardless of type, and will examine specific areas related to the campaign in conjunction with the regular Port State Control Inspection.

Port State Control Officers (PSCOs) will use a list of 11 questions to assess whether equipment provided onboard complies with the relevant convention, the master and officers are qualified and familiar with operations relating to shipboard emergency systems and that equipment is properly maintained and functioning.

They have also published their list of deficiency codes.
