Port State control focussed inspection campaigns
Focussed inspection campaigns target areas on ships which commonly have deficiencies.
The aim of these campaigns is to ensure all ships inspected are compliant with international requirements. Each focussed inspection campaign targets an area on the ship that commonly have deficiencies. These areas are checked during an inspection in Australian ports.
We conduct focussed inspection campaigns on ships visiting Australian ports. Each focussed inspection campaign targets an area on the ship that we commonly find is not meeting international standards and is not compliant.
Each campaign focus and timeframe is given to the shipping industry through marine notices, one month before the start date. During the campaign, our inspectors use a standard checklist to confirm that an area or individual equipment meets international standards. If an inspector finds a deficiency in relation to the campaign, it will be required to be fixed as normal port State control inspections.
