22 June 2022 |  C22028

Ship Owners/ Managers/ Operators | Flag Administrations | Surveyors/Auditors

The “White, Grey and Black (WGB) List” presents the full spectrum, from quality flags to flags with a poor performance that are considered high or very high risk. It is based on the total number of inspections and detentions during a 3-year rolling period for flags with at least 30 inspections in the period.

Regarding the “White, Grey and Black List” for 2021, a total number of 68 flags are listed:

  • 40 on the “White List”;
  • 21 on the “Grey List”; and
  • 7 on the “Black List”.

In 2020 the total number of flag States on the list was 70 of which 39 on the “White List”, 22 on the “Grey List” and 9 on the “Black List”.

For several years the Committee has closely monitored the performance of ROs acting on behalf of flag States. To calculate the performance of ROs, the same formula to calculate the excess factor of the flags is used. A minimum number of 60 inspections per RO is needed before the performance is taken into account for the list. In 2021 33 ROs were recorded on the performance list.

From the 01st of July 2022, the new performance lists will be used for calculating the Ship Risk Profile. More information can be found in the 2021 Annual Report that was published 1st of July. The annexed lists were also be published the 1st of July 2022 on the Paris MoU website.

Recognized Organization Performance Table 2019-2021

During the 3-year reporting period 2019-2021, DBS recorded 607 inspections with 15 detentions, resulting in an excess factor of 0.73.

Act now

With an aim to maintain this position and achieve a greater performance, DBS would like to remind Ship Owners/ Managers/ Operators on our Outstanding Recommendation Policy given through C18031.

In addition, through C17027, Shipowners have been informed on the DBS PSC Preventive Inspection Scheme introduced by our Port and Flag State Inspection Department. Ship Owners/ Managers/ Operators should be reminded that DBS is able to assist in reducing deficiencies on board their fleet and register their vessels under our scheme. By registering to our PSC Preventive Inspection Scheme, you are preventing possible deficiencies that may also lead to a detention.
