Dromon Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Emergency Systems and Procedures
31 July 2019 | C19030
Dromon Fleet in Service Marine Department has initiated the same CIC with Paris and Tokyo MoU one month in advanced.
Ship Owners/ Managers/ Operators | Surveyors / Auditors
The Member Authorities of the Paris and Tokyo Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control (PSC) will launch a joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Emergency Systems and Procedures. This inspection campaign will be held for three (3) months, commencing on 1 September 2019, in conjunction with the regular PSC inspection.
The purpose of the CIC is to ensure that:
- ships are capable of responding appropriately and promptly to emergency situations in order to preserve human lives, protect the marine environment and minimize damages to ships;
- necessary measures are taken by responsible stakeholders, such as shipping companies and ship managers having a direct influence on the safety of ships and by raising their awareness of the importance of ship emergency systems;
- emergency systems installed on board can be properly operated and effectively managed in any emergency situations; and
- master and crew of the ship understand their assigned roles and duties in case of emergency and enhance their familiarity with the situations so that they can act immediately when circumstances arise.
Dromon Fleet in Service Marine Department initiates the same Campaign, one month in advance, starting August 01, to run 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 and Tokyo 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.
