This guide compiles the latest advice and requirements from energy departments, Port State authorities and INTERTANKO members, to assist with understanding ship inspections and the vetting process, and to help readers comply with vetting requirements.

It contains:

  • A general introduction to Port State Control (PSC) and Regional MoUs
  • detailed information on specific MoUs
  • an overview of the detention appeal and review process
  • a guide to vetting inspections
  • specific vetting company requirements.

Appendices also provide details of IMO requirements, key INTERTANKO and OCIMF-SIRE documents and sample Report of Inspection forms.

PSC is the inspection of foreign ships in national ports to verify that the condition of the ship and its equipment comply with the requirements of international regulations and that the ship is manned and operated in compliance with these rules.

These inspections were originally intended to be a back up to Flag State implementation, however, experience has shown that they can be extremely effective. PSC provides a "safety net" to catch substandard ships, especially if the inspections are managed on a regional basis.
