Eleven foreign flagged ships were under detention in UK ports during June 2017, after failing Port State Control (PSC) inspection, according to data provided by UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

During June, there were seven new detentions of foreign flagged vessels in a UK port, while four vessels remained under detention from previous months. A total of seven vessels remain under detention at the end of June.

The UK is part of a regional agreement on port state control known as the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control (Paris MOU). Inspections of foreign flagged ships in UK ports are undertaken by surveyors from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. When a ship is found to be not in compliance with applicable convention requirements, a deficiency may be raised. If any of their deficiencies are so serious they have to be rectified before departure, then the ship will be detained.

 

The notes provided on the list of detentions include full details of the ship, the operation company, the classification society and the recognised Organisation and the performance of flag State (white – grey – black list assessed by the Paris MoU ).

The ships detained in detail may be viewed here.
