Tokyo MoU releases their PSC Annual Report for 2017

( This annual report summarises the port State control developments and activities of the Tokyo MOU in 2017. Moreover, the report also provides port State control statistics and analysis on the results of inspections carried out by member Authorities during the year.

It is worth to note that the number of detentions during the year has decreased to 941 in 2017. This is the lowest number and the first time less than 1,000 during the past two decades. However, on the other hand, average number of detainable deficiencies per detention has been increasing in the last three years. This may be interpreted as a trend that conditions of some substandard ships are becoming worse. Therefore the Tokyo MOU will need to further enhance and strengthen measures on inspection of under-performing and substandard ships.
