03 September 2014
Members are advised that the Maritime Authorities of the Paris and the Tokyo Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control have commenced a Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) lasting from 1 September to 30 November. This year’s CIC will focus on ships' adherence to the 'STCW Hours of Rest' regulations.
The purpose of the CIC is to target areas which are over represented in terms of deficiencies or areas which have become the subject of new requirements / conventions. CICs take place on an annual basis, in the same three month window (September to November). A list of previous CIC subjects is available from the Paris MOU website.
