Reminder - Paris MoU's Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) starts 1 September

Further to our article in Weekly NEWS No. 30/2007 dated 27 July 2007,  we remind members that the Paris Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control (PSC) will be carrying out a new Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on the implementation of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code on board ships. The campaign will start on 1 September 2007 and will last for a three-month period.


Port State Control Officers will verify that the safety management system (SMS) on board is not just a “paper exercise”. This campaign will be carried out in parallel with that of the Tokyo MoU. Every ship selected for a PSC inspection will be subject to the CIC.


A press release issued on 15 August gives further details.
