Join the free of charge Maritime Academy Smart-Up on 16 August: Port State Control Concentrated Inspection Campaigns (CIC) on "MARPOL VI"

Port State Control webinar

Port State Control Concentrated Inspection Campaigns (CIC) on “MARPOL VI” will start on 1st September 2018. Find out more about these campaigns and how they might affect your business by joining our free of charge online “Smart-Up” on 16 August 2018.

Black Sea MoU, Indian Ocean MoU, Paris MoU and Tokyo MoU will carry out this year’s Concentrated Inspection Campaign on MARPOL VI requirements.

The CIC will start as usual on 1st September 2018 and continue for the following three months until end of November 2018.

During the general PSC inspection, which is related to all statutory certificates, the part on MARPOL VI requirements will be extended by a detailed CIC questionnaire. This questionnaire includes additional focus points that need to be inspected by the Port State Control Officers (PSCO) during the regular PSC inspection.

The questionnaire is normally available 4 weeks before the start of the campaign but we can assume that the CIC will focus on the main deficiencies found during inspections over the previous years (e.g. record book of engine parameters, incinerator including operations and operating manual, fuel oil quality).

The goal of the CIC is to check the current status of ships with regard to conformity with air pollution prevention requirements and to raise awareness about new maximum limits for sulphur in ship fuel oil that will enter into force on 1 January 2020.

DNV GL’s experts will present information on each question from the published CIC questionnaire during the Smart-Up. If you attend the “live” session you will have the chance to ask your own specific questions about these topics.

This Smart Up will have two sessions at 10.00 CEST and 16.00 CEST as we anticipate a lot of interest in these items.
