26 July 2021 | C21020
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 Stability (in general). This inspection campaign will be held for three (3) months, commencing on 1 September 2021 and ending 30 November 2021, in conjunction with the regular PSC inspection.
The purpose of the CIC is to ensure that:
- ship’s crew are familiar with assessing the actual stability condition on completion of cargo operation before departure of the ship and all stages of the voyage;
- ship’s crew and owners about the importance of calculating the actual stability condition of the ship on completion of cargo operations and before departure of the ship;
- the ship complies with the intact stability requirements and damage stability requirements, if applicable, under the relevant IMO instruments.
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 their assignment.
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 MoUs.
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.
