PARIS MOU SHIP INSPECTION PROGRAMME

The 19 members of ‘The Paris MOU of Understanding on PSC’ are now well into their intensive inspection programme of tankers.

The response to date is too small to indicate the level of non-compliance that may exist.

The reason for the intensive three-month inspection programme is for the 19 participating countries to get a full understanding of the magnitude of the problem from unsafe tankers transiting their coastline. There appears to have been few reports of note, though apparently there is a sister ship of the Erika, currently detained in Rotterdam.
