Our ship management consultants are able to undertake a PSC verification audit to determine the suitability and effectiveness of the organisation’s analysis and management of Port State Control (PSC) issues and trends within their fleet and management system.
Port State Control (PSC) is an internationally agreed regime for the inspection of foreign vessels in other national ports by PSC inspectors. These inspectors are tasked with verifying compliance of the vessel with the requirements of key international conventions and associated codes (e.g. ISM, ISPS, SOLAS, MARPOL, STCW, MLC).
Our aim is to assist our clients in providing pragmatic solutions to prevent being targeted by PSC, with any PSC compliance issues being managed and controlled more effectively.
Azimuth experts can also undertake independent evaluation of PSC deficiencies and detentions. This service could be of interest to ship owners and operators as well as Flag States.
Our clients often choose to combine the PSC Audit with an ISM/ISPS Audit, conducted at the same time. Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
