Each year, the major Port State Control MoUs conduct a Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) focusing on newly in-force or upcoming changes to international regulations.
These CIC’s are generally announced in the summer and often take place in the summer and fall. These campaigns are conducted in conjunction with the normal inspection process, and while they do not result in extra inspections or inspections outside of a vessel’s normal inspection window, they do result in longer and more detailed inspections when a vessel’s window is open or their anniversary comes due.
Checklists are often published ahead of time, along with the announcement of the area of focus for each MoU.
Here are this year’s PSC MoU CICs:
|Paris MoU||MARPOL Annex VI||September to November 2018|
|Tokyo MoU||MARPOL Annex VI||September to November 2018|
|Black Sea MoU||MARPOL Annex VI||September to November 2018|
|Indian Ocean MoU||MARPOL Annex VI||September to November 2018|
|Vina del Mar||SOLAS Ch. II-1||June to August 2018|
|USCG||Open Lifeboats||May 2018 - May 2019|
