01 August 2018 | C18033
On May 14, 2018 the Paris MoU announced the joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign of Paris and Tokyo MoU on MARPOL Annex VI that will run from September to November 2018.
The main objectives of this CIC are to:
- establish the level of compliance with the requirements of MARPOL Annex VI within the shipping industry;
- create awareness amongst ships’ crew and ship owners about the importance of compliance with the provisions of MARPOL Annex VI and the prevention of air pollution;
- send a signal to the industry that prevention of air pollution and enforcement of compliance with applicable requirements is high on the agenda of both MoU member States; and
- underline the responsibility of the Port State Control regime with regards to harmonized enforcement of compliance with the requirements of MARPOL Annex VI, thus improving the level of compliance and ensuring a level playing field.
Dromon Port State & Flag State Inspection and Survey Department initiates the same CIC one month in advanced from Paris and Tokyo MoUs for four (4) months aiming to identify possible deficiencies on board our fleet as well as potential deficiencies that may result in a detention.
As with previous CICs, in practice this CIC will be carried out in conjunction with the forthcoming surveys on all ship and Surveyors will be informed through the ISAT form (refer QSP 3.2-1/Form 01). In case a ship is not due for any statutory survey within this period, the CIC will be conducted as an Occasional Attendance on board where this is feasible and practicable at a convenient port of call.
Dromon Surveyors shall use the CIC checklist attached to this Circular that is identical to the checklist to be used by the Paris MoU. When deficiencies are found, Surveyors shall inform Dromon Head office by imposing a Notice of Recommendation as per Dromon QSP 3.2-1/Form 02 indicating clearly the recommendation and due date of rectification. Any imposed deficiency will be shown on the survey status of the ship and our online platform ‘’ERETES’’ for further actions by the Manager.
