PSC meeting: How do Danish ships avoid non-conformities and detentions in PSC inspections?
20-04-2017 10:00

Also this year, the Danish Maritime Authority will be hosting meetings on port State control inspections for shore-based and ship-based employees. The purpose is to engage in a dialogue on onboard safety and on how ships can prepare for PSC inspections.

​Avoid unnecessary non-conformities and get better at supporting the crew

The meeting is an opportunity to exchange experiences gained from PSC inspections. Together we will discuss how to improve safety and, thereby, avoid non-conformities and detentions and how the shore-based organisation can best support the crew in connection with PSC inspections.

PSC inspections and last year's campaign

We must learn from our faults. The Danish Maritime Authority will go through the non-conformities most frequently found in PSC inspections, present the Danish authorities' way of performing PSC inspections and explain how shipowners can help the crew handle PSC inspections. The results from last year's campaign on MLC will be presented.

Probably, you can also contribute with experiences – good as well as bad ones – from which others can learn.

The Danish Maritime Authority will present current issues, such as the latest news on the Ballast Water Management Convention and its importance to Danish ships.

The meetings will be held as follows:

  • In Svendborg on 24 May from 10 am to 2 pm. The meeting will be held at SIMAC, Graaesvej 27 in Svendborg.
  • In Aarhus on 2 June from 10 am to 2 pm. The meeting will be held in the Port of Aarhus, Vandvejen 7, Aarhus C.
  • In Valby on 8 June from 10 am to 2 pm. The meeting will be held at the Danish Maritime Authority, Carl Jacobsens Vej 31, in Valby.

The meeting in Copenhagen (Valby) will be conducted in English, whereas the meetings in Svendborg and Aarhus will be conducted in Danish. A maximum of two persons can attend per shipowner.
