Focused inspection campaign—planned maintenance
The campaign will apply to foreign flagged ships and Regulated Australian Vessels (RAVs) arriving at Australian ports.
The purpose of the focussed inspection campaign is to determine the:
- Level of compliance with the maintenance requirements of the International Conventions.
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.
We encourage 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 we can collate and report on the outcomes.
Outcome of the focussed inspection campaign
The results of the FIC have been analysed and the report is now available.
A checklist of requirements that will be used during this FIC is available here.
