INTERTANKO contributes on PSC at EU’s PSC seminar in Ireland

Port state control is actively supported by the shipping industry, but more needs to be done to harmonise standards, said INTERTANKO managing director Dr. Peter Swift, invited to make a presentation at a recent EU Seminar in Ireland. (See also WN 13 of 26 March).

A greater sharing of inspection records would help, he said, adding that it is imperative that the integrity of port state control be maintained. Moreover, better targeting could be achieved from additional analysis of port state control records and performance.
