THE DNV GUIDE TO PORT STATE CONTROL
|D O W N L O A D|
As the industry professionals, we are for sure aware of the fact that the number of substandard vessels significantly increased in the period 1980-1990. This was seen by all governments as a serious threat to the life at sea as well as to the marine environment.
As a result, most of the IMO members came to the right decision to use even greater efforts in order to ensure due compliance with the regulations developed by the IMO making a good attempt to reduce the number of such substandard vessels. DNV, one of the world's leaders in providing classification services, developed the present Guide which can be used as a very informative and useful tool by ship masters, crew members and officers both ashore and on board to achieve required compliance with the requirements covering the safety of life at sea and protection of the environment - it is actually an invaluable instrument for preparation for the PSC inspection.
It may be treated as a good supplement to the maintenance system established on the ship, and will direct people on board to better focus on the maintenance of the critical areas that are usually in focus of PSC. By doing so, they shall be able to better prepare their ship for the forthcoming visit of the PSC inspector and avoid any problems.
