Out now! Outcome report – planned maintenance focused inspection campaign

Thursday 20 October 2022
Between 15 January and 28 February 2022, we conducted a focused inspection campaign on planned maintenance. Along with our standard port State control (PSC) and flag State control (FSC) inspections, our inspectors asked specific questions about planned maintenance.

The campaign focused on the: 

  • Level of compliance with the planned maintenance system (PMS) requirements of the International Conventions. This included statutory requirements under SOLAS and mandatory PMS requirements from the ISM Code.  
  • Familiarity of the master and officers with their processes for ensuring maintenance of the ship and equipment and, whether the ship has been maintained after survey in accordance with statutory requirements.  

The results of the campaign showed that a high number of ships failed to comply with planned maintenance requirements.
