Tanker Port State Control detentions’ low share continue.

Since 1996 tankers have consistently shown a lower share of inspected ships detained as compared to the totals. Our preliminary estimate shows that in 2002, 6.3% of inspected ships were detained and only 3.7% of inspected tankers.

INTERTANKO has since 1996 kept track of, reviewed and analysed Port State Control reports of world-wide inspections and detentions as reported by the USCG, the Paris MoU and the Tokyo MoU. Through this period tankers have consistently shown a lower share of inspected ships detained as compared to the totals.

Our preliminary estimate for 2002 shows that over 50,000 inspections of ships were carried out by Port State Control. Of these more than 3,000 detentions were reported, which resulted in 6.3% of the inspected ships being detained. Regarding tankers, more than 8,000 inspections were carried out, which resulted in about 300 detentions or 3.7% of the inspected tankers detained.
