Lithuania to remain in safe shipping list of Paris Memorandum
Tuesday, 14 February 2012 | 13:08
Lithuania will remain in Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Ship Security's white list. Last year, only one ship did not comply with the security requirements out of 64 tested in Lithuanian ship register, the Lithuania-based maritime news portal Jura reports.
This made only 1.56% of the total amount. This rate is the lowest, counting since 2003, reports LETA/ELTA.
Ships sailing with the Lithuanian flag are technically secure and comply with the requirements of safe shipping.
State control inspectors are working vigorously to check ships' security. This indicator is a key determinant, allowing joining the Paris Memorandum. It also determines into which list, a country is included. Lithuania has reached the top white list of Paris Memorandum in 2009.
Because of this, now the Lithuanian ships are much more valued for their security levels. In such a way, ship owners have less problems with the checking of their ships, to put it simple, their ships are tested less.
