Paris and Tokyo MoU Joint PSC Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on STCW Compliance (1 Sept – 30 Nov 2022)

Paris and Tokyo MoU have announced that they will jointly launch a new Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) from 1st September 2022 to 30th November 2022.

The inspection campaign will be additional to the regular PSC inspections, and its intention is to determine the level of compliance with the relevant provisions of STCW Convention and Code and the applicable safe manning requirements as determined by the Flag State Administration.

During this period of three months, the Port State Control Officers (PSCOs) will not limit inspections only to a typical certification check, but they will expand their focus on the watch-keeping schedules and hours of rest indicate compliance with the requirements of STCW Convention and Code.

PSCOs will use a list of predefined questions during the CIC. If deficiencies are found, actions by the port State may vary from recording a deficiency and instructing the master to rectify it within a certain period of time to detaining the ship until the detainable deficiencies have been rectified.

Members are recommended to refer to the attached questionnaire to assist their shipboard team in preparing for the PSC inspections.
