PORT STATE CONTROL: TOKYO AND THE PARIS MOU LAUNCH A JOINT CONCENTRATED INSPECTION CAMPAIGN (CIC) ON EMERGENCY SYSTEMS AND PROCEDURES
Published: August 1, 2019
The main objectives of this CIC are to ensure that:
- ships can respond appropriately and promptly to emergency situations to preserve human lives, protect the marine environment and minimize damages to ships;
- necessary measures are taken by responsible stakeholders, such as shipping companies and ship managers having a direct influence on the safety of ships and by raising their awareness of the importance of ship emergency systems;
- emergency systems installed on board can be properly operated and effectively managed in any emergency situations; and
- master and crew of the ship understand their assigned roles and duties in case of emergency and enhance their familiarity with the situations so that they can act immediately when circumstances arise.
This inspection campaign will be held for three months, commencing from 1 September 2019 and ending 30 November 2019. A ship will be subject to one inspection under this CIC during the period of the campaign.
