Paris MoU 2023 Performance List

Dromon Bureau of Shipping Achieves Significant Improvement in Paris MoU Performance List

03 July 2024

Dromon Bureau of Shipping (DBS) is proud to announce a substantial improvement in its performance on the latest Paris MoU List for Recognized Organizations (ROs), covering the period 2021-2023. This List is effective from 1st of July 2024 and is used for calculating the Ship Risk Profile which determines the ship’s priority for inspection.

Compared to the previous three years (2020-2022), DBS’s Excess Factor has significantly decreased from 0.63 to 0.33. This translates to an impressive rise of 8 places in the ranking.

This achievement reflects DBS’s unwavering commitment to enhancing safety and performance across its fleet. The success can be attributed in part to several proactive initiatives, including:

  • A Robust Detention Policy: This policy ensures clear and consistent procedures for addressing detainable deficiencies identified during inspections.
  • Alerts on Detainable Deficiencies: DBS proactively informs clients about potential detainable issues, allowing for timely rectification and avoiding detentions.
  • Port State Control (PSC) Preventive Actions Scheme: This program helps DBS clients prepare for PSC inspections, minimizing the risk of deficiencies.
  • Preventive Inspection Checklists: DBS utilizes comprehensive checklists to identify and address potential issues before inspections.


Dromon CEO Andreas Nicolaou expressed his gratitude: “This significant improvement in our Paris MoU ranking is a testament to the tireless efforts and dedication of our entire team, particularly the PSC Department. We extend our sincere appreciation for their outstanding contributions.”
