Our Port and Flag State Inspection Department in co-operation with the Survey Department is initiating an internal Concentrate Inspection Campaign (CIC) on emergency systems.

NOTICE TO
Ship Owners/ Managers/ Operators | Flag Administrations | Surveyors

As already been informed through our 2017 Annual Port State Control (PSC) Publication (download a copy from here), a CIC on emergency systems will be performed on board our fleet.  The CIC will start from April till the end of June 2018.

The CIC theme has been selected following an internal analysis of 2017 PSC inspection results.  Emergency systems was the area of inspection that showed an increase in imposed deficiencies last year.  The aim of this CIC is to identify and reduce the number of deficiencies related to emergency systems.

The CIC will be carried out by our Surveyors during schedule surveys, irrespective of scope.

Surveyors will use a list with selected questions as attached to this Circular to verify compliance of the vessels with international rules and regulations.  The list of questions has been selected based on the 2017 recorded deficiencies.

Any identified deficiency will be recorded in the survey status report of the vessel for the proper follow up and a corrective action plan.  You can review deficiencies through our ERETES platform.  We may request an additional occasional attendance for the verification of proper corrective action(s).

Act now

We recommend submitting the attached checklist to the vessel and ensure that it complies to avoid possible deficiencies both by PSC and our Surveyors.  In case you have identified any deficiency please inform our Marine Division.

Attending Surveyors should, during forthcoming surveys/ audits, irrespective of scope, assure that the CIC checklist has been completed to verify compliance of the vessels.  In case deficiencies have been recorded an official Notice of Recommendation shall be issued to the vessel and a copy shall be submitted to the Survey Department.

For further information, please contact our Marine Division through marine@dromon.com
