The new PSC Inspection Regime is improving effectiveness

The New Inspection Regime (NIR) for Port State Control has been in place since 1 January 2011 (read our News dated 10/02/2010 and 01/12/2011), and some stocktaking is in order.

By 31 July this year, Paris MoU Member States had performed 10,971 inspections, 22.6% less than the 14,177 reported for the same period in 2010, EMSA reported.

This figure is very close to the estimated reduction of ‘necessary inspections’ that was predicted for the NIR, clearly demonstrating the benefits of the new regime. For the same period the detention rate slightly increased from 3.6% in 2010 to 3.7% in 2011.
