Paris MoU: CIC Campaign on Enclosed Space Entry to raise awareness

enclosed space

Paris MoU announced that the results of the Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Crew Familiarization for Enclosed Space Entry which carried out between 1st September 2015 and 30th November 2015 indicate industry awareness. The CIC did not lead to an increase in the rate of detentions however the actual compliance, shown in drills, could be better (7.9% of drills were found to be unsatisfactory).

“A satisfactory result regarding the detention percentage, but work to be done”, says Secretary General Richard Schiferli. “Both industry and PSCOs should continue to pay attention to Enclosed Space Entry.” The effort should be directed especially on the training of the crew and the correct execution of drills.

Preliminary results on Enclosed Space Entry for the Paris MoU show that 3776 inspections have been performed using the CIC questionnaire. Of those inspections 54 detentions have CIC topic related deficiencies. The total number of detentions in the 3-month period was 160. The detention percentage for the CIC period is similar to the average annual percentage. A satisfactory level of compliance was shown and the time invested was well spent to raise awareness of enclosed space entry procedures and check compliance on an important topic where lives can be at stake.

Further analysis will be done on the inspection results to see whether there are any recommendations that could be made to industry, flag States or MoUs. Results of the detailed analysis will be discussed at the annual Committee meeting in May 2016 and the Committee will decide whether or not to publish the results of the CIC.
