Port State Control – Assistance with Deficiencies and Detentions

Port State Control (PSC) is an internationally agreed regime for the inspection of foreign vessels in other national ports by PSC inspectors.

The remit of port state control officers is to verify compliance of the vessel against the requirements of international conventions, such as SOLAS, MARPOL, STCW, and the MLC.

In the event that a PSC inspection results in deficiencies being identified and/or the vessel being detained, we can attend and assist with:

  • Effective management of deficiency rectification
  • Any training or compliance issues identified
  • Liaison with Port and Flag States

Our ship management consultants can also undertake the role of independent experts in the evaluation of PSC deficiencies and detentions. This service could be of interest to ship owners and operators as well as Flag States.

Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
