Out now! Outcome report – hours of work and rest focused inspection campaign
Thursday 20 October 2022
Between 1 May and 17 June 2022, we conducted a focused inspection campaign on hours of work and rest. Along with our standard port State control (PSC) and flag State control (FSC) inspections, specific questions about hours of work and rest were asked by our inspectors.
The campaign focussed on the:
- Level of compliance with the maximum hours of work/minimum hours of rest for seafarers in accordance with the requirements of International Conventions.
- Familiarity of the master and officers with implementing the provisions when working onboard ships.
The results of the campaign were positive and showed general compliance with the work and rest requirements. Most of the inspections conducted during this period, resulted in no hours of work and rest related deficiencies.
