Another useful and practical publication prepared by ISF and ICS specialists. This Table has been initially intended to serve two main purposes. The first of the purposes would be to encourage the operators of the vessels as well as their owners to examine if the flag state administrations have sufficient substance before using it. The second purpose of this booklet is to encourage operators and ship owners to put more pressure on flag authorities for necessary improvements related to safety of life at sea plus environment protection as well as provision of decent living and working conditions for seafarers. The information contained in the Table will definitely be useful once it comes to the assessment of the flag states performance. The Table is intended to summarize the factual data in the public domain that may be helpful when applied in the process of the performance assessment of flag state authorities. Of course, it shall be used with the due care. Though only some particular time period is covered within this paper, as it is evident from the title, the information in the document will still be of some use for people involved in any dealings with the flag authorities so we would recommend them to have a look in the paper.
