During the COVID-19 outbreak, we have seen a decrease in the inspections within 2020 (-28% compared to 2019) with numbers bouncing back in 2021( -14% compared to 2019), expecting a full recovery in 2022. The PSC inspections during 2021 marked the top 5 categories of deficiencies with a list of MLC, Fire Safety, Safety of navigation, Certificate & documentation & Lifesaving appliances.

PSC Focus

PSC MoUs have a common system to assist PSC Officers (PSCO) identify deficiencies during ship inspections, using a 5 digit code with a specific description attached to it, so that PSCOs report class and codify PSC findings.
