02.Paris MOU on Port State Control
  • Outline
    • Port State control (PSC) is a system of harmonized inspection procedures designed to target substandard ships with the main objective being their eventual elimination. Port States are entitled to control foreign ships visiting their own ports to ensure that any deficiencies found are rectified before they are allowed to sail.
    • It is well known that the responsibility for ensuring that ships comply with the provisions of the relevant instruments rests upon the owners, masters, recognized organization and the flag State administrations.
    • However, the primary responsibility to safeguard against substandard ships lies on with the flag States.
    • Regrettably, some flag States fail to fulfill their commitments contained in agreed international legal instruments and subsequently some ships are sailing in an unsafe condition, threatening the lives as well as the marine environment. It is when flag states fail to meet their commitments that port State comes into play.
      For the effective understanding of PSC activities, maritime Authorities have joined the regional Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as a member. The Paris MOU is the model upon which other regions of the world base their agreements on PSC. Starting with the Paris MOU, PSC became more organized and widespread and now there are various Memorandum of Understanding on Port States control covering almost every part of the world. At present, there are eight regional agreements on PSC with the total of 123 members states.
    • In recent years, the importance of PSC has been widely recognized by the shipping industry and there has been important movement in various regions toward establishing a harmonized method for the effective implementation of the control provisions. The followings are the Memorandum of Understanding on PSC in the world to this date.

    lack Sea MOU (Black Sea region)
03.United State Coast Guard(USCG)
      • Founded in the 1790's as part of the Department of Treasury, the United States Coast Guard is now part of the Department of Transportation, protecting U.S. interests at home and around the world. In peacetime and during war, the Coast Guard is at work around the clock, 365 days a year, patrolling shores, saving lives, protecting property and enhancing the flow of commerce. From helping the victims of floods and storms, to keeping millions of dollars worth of illegal drugs from flooding American communities, to teaching boating safety and cleaning up oil spills, the Coast Guard is, like its motto, Semper Paratus, Always Ready
      • Only in the most extreme or obvious cases did the U.S. Coast Guard intervene under the international conventions (e.g. SOLAS, MARPOL, Load line) to detain non-U.S. ships. The situation has changed radically.
      • Today non-U.S. flag vessels carry more than 90% of the international commercial freight arriving or departing the United States. Over 8000 non-U.S. ships from more than 100 countries arrive in the U.S. every year. Ninety-five percent of all passenger ships and 75% of all cargo ships (including tankers) entering the country are flagged by other countries than the U.S.
      • In 1994, the U.S. Congress recognized that within the greater influx of non-U.S. ships there undoubtedly existed a number of substandard vessels which posed an unacceptable threat to the safety of ports, waterways, and marine environment of the country. Accordingly, the Congress directed the Coast Guard to develop a program to eliminate substandard vessels from the nation's waters, and to submit annual reports on the status of this newly mandated program.
  • U.S. Coast Guard's Boarding Priority Matrix
      • In developing its risk assessment methodology, the Coast Guard first recognized that three entities directly influence a vessel's operational condition and compliance with international safety and environmental protection standards. These entities are: 1) owner and operators list, 2) classification societies, and 3) flag states. If any of these entities fails to fully undertake its responsibilities for a ship's safe operation, then the ship is likely to be considered a substandard vessel by the U.S.Coast Guard.
      • The Coast Guard's previous experience with a particular ship provides another indication of whether or not that vessel poses an unacceptable risk. In addition, certain types of ships pose a higher risk to themselves and the cargo they transport. These vessel types include: oil and chemical tankers, gas carriers, passenger ships, bulk freighters more than ten years old, and any vessel carrying low value commodities in bulk
      • The boarding priority matrix enables the Coast Guard to rationally and systematically determine the probable risk posed by non-U.S. ships calling at U.S. ports. The Matrix is used to decide which ships Port State Control Officers should board on any given day, in any given port. Points are assessed in each of the five columns and then summed for a total point score. This numerical score, along with other performance based factors, determines a ship's boarding priority. The following summarizes the priority categories and associated operational restrictions which may be imposed on ships by U.S. Coast Guard Captains of the Port
  • PORT STATE CONTROL OWNER & OPERATOR LIST
      • The following is the U.S. Coast Guard's compilation of vessel owners and operators which have been associated with more than one detention under the authority of an international convention by the Coast Guard within the past twelve months. Placement on this list does not imply that all ships associated with the owner or operator are substandard.
      • The purpose of the enclosed information, compiled under the authority of Titles 14, 33, and 46, United States Code, is to aid the Coast Guard in carrying out its port State responsibilities. The goal of the Port State Control Initiative is to identify substandard foreign flag vessels through boardings and examinations, and then to take the appropriate action to eliminate the threat that such vessels may pose to U.S. waters, ports, and citizens.
      • The Coast Guard's program is designed to effectively direct its vessel inspection resources to those vessels which may pose greater risks. As a result, a vessel making a U.S. port call that is owned or operated by a person or entity that has had that vessel, or a different vessel, subject to more than one intervention action within the last twelve months is a higher priority for a Coast Guard port State control boarding. However, the owner/operator is only one of several factors considered by the U.S. Coast Guard in deciding whether to actually board and inspect a vessel.
      • The Owners List is updated monthly. The revised version of the Owner's List is sent to all Coast Guard Marine Safety Offices
  • Classification Society Targeting Methodology
      • Classification Societies are evaluated on their performance over the previous three years. Classification Societies with less than ten distinct arrivals in the previous year are filtered out. If they have been associated with any detentions in the previous three years they receive priority 1 status. If they have not been associated with any detentions in the previous three years they receive zero points.
      • Classification Societies with more than ten distinct arrivals in the previous year are evaluated on their performance over the previous three years. Their performance is based on their detention ratio (number of detentions divided by the number of distinct arrivals). This ratio is then compared to the average detention ratio (total number of detentions divided by the total number of distinct arrivals). These Classification Societies are then assigned points according to where their detention ratios fall in relation to the average detention ratio.

      • 1 point : Carrying low value commodities in bulk
    • Priority I vessels
      • 17 or more points on the Matrix, or
      • ships involved in a marine casualty that may have affected seaworthiness, or
      • USCG Captain of the Port determines a vessel to be a potential hazard to the port or the environment
      • ships whose classification society has ten or more arrivals the previous year and a detention ratio more than four times the average, or
      • ships whose classification society has less than ten arrivals the previous year and have been associated with at least one detention.
    • Port entry may be restricted until vessel is examined by the Coast Guard.
    • Priority II vessels
      • 7 to 16 points on the Matrix, or
      • outstanding requirements from a previous boarding in this or another U.S. port, or the vessel is overdue for an annual tank or passenger exam
    • Cargo operations may be restricted until vessel is examined by the Coast Guard
    • Priority III vessels
      • 4 to 6 points on the Matrix, or
      • alleged deficiencies reported, or
      • the vessel is overdue for an annual freight examination, or quarterly passenger vessel re-exam
    • No operational restrictions imposed; vessel will most likely be examined at dock
    • Priority IV vessels
      • 3 or fewer points on the Matrix
    • Vessel is a low risk, and will probably not be boarded
      • Coast Guard efforts to eliminate substandard shipping have focused on improving methods to identify poor-quality vessels (targeting schemes). However, regardless of the score that a vessel receives in our targeting matrix, all foreign-flagged vessels are examined no less than once each year. This provides few incentives for the well run, quality ship. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of vessels are operated responsibly, and are typically found with few or no deficiencies. Under our current policies, these vessels are boarded at similar intervals as vessels that aren't operated responsibly. These quality vessels should be recognized and rewarded for their commitment to safety and quality. Therefore, on January 1, 2001, the Coast Guard will implement an initiative to identify high-quality ships, and provide incentives to encourage quality operations. This initiative is called Qualship 21, quality shipping for the 21st century.

  • Nineteen west and central African nations have agreed to work towards establishing a Port State Control (PSC) regime in the shortest possible time in order to eradicate sub-standard ships from the region.
    The nations, at a meeting in Accra, Ghana held from 17 to 20 February 1998, agreed on a preliminary draft text of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and a draft Training Programme. They also agreed to make every effort to put in place competent maritime Administrations where they do not already exist, and to strengthen existing maritime Administrations, in order to implement an effective PSC regime.
