Port State Control (PSC) is the inspection of foreign ships in national ports to verify that the condition of the ship and its equipment comply with the requirements of international regulations and that the ship is manned and operated in compliance with these rules. The inspection is done by officers representing the national Port State Authority in each country.

We are providing support, information and training in PSC matters to help you be better prepared for port state control inspections through compliance with the relevant requirements and guidance to preventive maintenance.

DNV and GL’s longstanding high PSC performance is a testimony to the quality of our services and good co-operation with our customers; a legacy that DNV GL AS will carry into the future.
