9/2021—Focused inspection campaign—planned maintenance
The purpose of the FIC is to determine the level of compliance with the maintenance requirements of the International Conventions.
This Focused Inspection Campaign (FIC) has been initiated by AMSA and is specific to Australia. It will apply to foreign flagged ships and Regulated Australian Vessels (RAVs) arriving at an Australian port.
The FIC will be conducted from 15 January 2022 to 30 March 2022.
AMSA inspectors will undertake the FIC in conjunction with a normal port or flag State control inspection.
Any port State control deficiencies will be reported to regional port State control databases.
AMSA encourages ship owners and masters to familiarise themselves with the requirements of SOLAS Chapter 1/II, Australian Marine Order 31 and their safety management systems implemented onboard.
Inspectors will complete a checklist when conducting focused inspections so that AMSA can collate and report on the outcomes.
Outcome of the FIC
The results of the FIC will be analysed at the conclusion of the campaign, and a report will be published on AMSA’s website.
AMSA encourages ship owners, operators and masters to review the information provided at the links above.
This notice will be cancelled on 30 March 2022.
