ICS updates the Flag State Performance Table 2017/2018

(http://www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has published its annual Shipping Industry Flag State Performance Table 2017/2018. The ICS Shipping Industry Flag State Performance Table brings together data available in the public domain regarding the performance of flag states in terms of, inter alia, Port State Control records, ratification of international Conventions, and IMO meeting attendance. It is intended to encourage shipowners to maintain a dialogue with their flag administrations to help bring about any improvements that might be necessary in the interests of safety, the environment and decent working conditions.

The purpose of this Flag State Performance Table is two-fold:

  • To encourage shipowners and operators to examine whether a flag state has sufficient substance before using it.
  • To encourage shipowners and operators to put pressure on their flag administrations to effect any improvements that might be necessary, especially in relation to safety of life at sea, the protection of the marine environment, and the provision of decent working and living conditions for seafarers
