Port State Control

Port State Control

The Paris Memorandum of Understanding (Paris MoU), which is considered as the first and the most comprehensive PSC regime in the world has announced the new "Performance Table of Recognized Organization" regarding the port state control results covering the years 2018 - 2020. Türk Loydu managed to maintain its "High Performance" status, as it has been for the last 16 years.

Türk Loydu succeeded to leave behind many international classification societies including some of IACS member organizations and proved that it will continue to improve its fleet monitoring applications every year.

As a result of Türk Loydu's "High Performance" status; ships in Türk Loydu fleet are less likely to be inspected by the port state controls in Paris MoU member states.
Ships classed by Türk Loydu have achieved historic success in the Port State Control Pari smemorandum of Understanding with a detention rate of 2.3 in 2020 inspections. At the same time, there is no detention, in which Türk Loydu has been shown as the responsible authorized organization (RO responsible) since 2015. One of the crucial factors in achieving this rate is monitoring the ships in our fleet constantly and thus reaching high standards. Within the scope of monitoring activities; corrective and preventive actions were taken for the ships in our fleet by analyzing all the findings detected druing the port state inspections and the data obtained as a result of the research processes.
Port State Control Preparation checklist is published to assist masters, ship owners and managers in order to prepare their ships for port state control inspections.

Joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign on Fire SafetyThe Member Authorities of the Tokyo and the Paris Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control will launch a joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Fire Safety.

The purpose of the campaign is:

• to create awareness among the ship's crew and owners about the importance of fire safety measures; and

• to verify that the ship complies with fire safety requirements under the relevant IMO instruments.

This inspection campaign will be held for three months, from 1 September 2023 to 30 November 2023. The campaign will examine specific areas related to fire safety in conjunction with the regular Port State Control inspection.

A ship will be subject to only one inspection under this CIC during the period of the campaign.

Port State Control Officers (PSCOs) will use a pre-defined questionnaire to assess that fire-fighting systems and equipment comply with the relevant requirements, that the master and crew members are familiar with operations relating to fire safety, and that equipment is properly maintained and functioning.

If deficiencies are found, actions by the port State may vary from recording a deficiency and instructing the master to rectify it within a certain period of time to detaining the ship until the serious deficiencies have been rectified.
