CONCENTRATED INSPECTION CAMPAIGN (CIC) ON CARGO SECURING ARRANGEMENTS
Black Sea Memoranda of Understanding (BS MOU) will start a concentrated inspection campaign on Cargo Securing Arrangements. The three-month campaign will start on September 1, 2016 and end on November 30, 2016. The campaign shall be conducted simultaneously with the Tokyo MOU.
The purpose of this CIC is to verify that there is compliance with the procedures and measures that are in place on cargo securing arrangements on board ships meeting applicable requirements of the SOLAS and related guidelines.
Port State Control Officers (PSCOs) will use a list of 10 selected questions for all cargo securing arrangements to establish that crew members with cargo securing duties are familiar with relevant equipment and documents and identify and understand the hazards associated with cargo securing operations. Please see next page for the Turkish / English content of the CIC questionnaire that may be helpful for the preparation to CIC inspections.
When deficiencies are found, actions by the Port State may vary from recording a deficiencies and instructing the master to rectify it within a certain period to detaining the ship until serious deficiencies have been rectified.
