3rd PSCO Expert Mission Seminar

17/03/15

The 3rd PSCO (Port State Control Organisation) seminar in the Indian Ocean Region has being jointly organized by the Indian Maritime Administration (DG Shipping) and the IOMOU (Memorandum Of Understanding on Port State Control for the Indian Ocean Region) and the Secretariat with the help of the Australia Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) from 11 to 13 March 2015, at Kolkata , India.
 
The IO-MOU is a regional co-operation for the countries on the Indian Ocean rim, to control the plying of sub-standard ships in the region.
Sovereign and other self-governing States have the right to control any activities within their own borders, including those of the visiting ships. Control of port State, over the foreign flag ships in their ports, for verifying compliance with the requirements of the international maritime conventions, on the basis of the above philosophy, is called port State control (PSC).

 

PSC comes into the scene when ship owners, ship managers, classification societies and flag State administrations have failed to comply with the requirements of the international maritime conventions. Although it is well understood that the ultimate responsibility for implementing conventions is left to the flag States, port States are entitled to control foreign ships visiting their own ports to ensure that any deficiency, including that concerning living condition and safety of ship staff, found are rectified before they are allowed to sail. Port State control is regarded as measures complementary to the flag State control.

 

In recent years, a few shipping disasters, causing alarming damage to the environment, made the whole world concerned about protection of their coastal water. The European Memorandum on port State control, popularly known as Paris MOU, is the result of this concern. Subsequently, the following Memoranda of Understanding on port State control concluded to this date. The International Maritime Organisation(IMO) played major role in formulation of these MOUs.

 

Our Ship in Service Senior Surveyor, Mr Amit Agarwal based in Kolkata, has been invited by the Indian Maritime Administration (DG Shipping) to attend to this PSCO Expert Mission Seminar.
