In order to assist vessel managers ensuring their vessels are in compliance with class and international conventions DNV GL has created a list of the most frequent detainable items found during PSC inspections on DNV GL classed vessels.
This list will be given special focus by DNV GL surveyors during periodical surveys helping owners to avoid detentions. The list may also be used by owners for preparation for port arrivals and class surveys to ensure efficient expedition of surveys.
In addition to the listed technical items failure of ISM is still the most frequently recorded deficiency by PSC. Ensuring that an effective Safety Management System is properly implemented onboard is the best foundation to reduce the risk of detention.
