Join the joint branch for the next talk in their lecture series entitiled Port State Control and the Role of the MCA.
The UK inspects 1600 foreign flagged vessels each year as part of its responsibility under the Port State Control Regime.
The talk will cover the origins of Port State control, the role of the Paris Memorandum of Understanding and the European Maritime Safety Agency and the risk rating applied to ships and the companies that run them. A description of the inspection process together with potential outcomes will follow. A selection of examples will be used to illustrate the presentation.
