BIMCO ASKS SHIP OPERATORS TO RESPOND TO ANTI-CORRUPTION SURVEY

Friday, May 22, 2020 

According to shipowner organisation BIMCO, the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) is undertaking a survey to obtain a better understanding of the possible link between the COVID-19 outbreak and corrupt demands faced by the shipping industry, and how such demands are affecting seafarers and vessel operations.

BIMCO supports MACN’s efforts to fight corruption in shipping and is therefore encouraging members to respond to the survey.

The survey, which is designed as a short 3-minutes 'tick-the-box' questionnaire, gives stakeholders in the shipping industry the possibility to indicate, amongst other things, if they continue to face challenges during vessel clearance and/or Port State Control inspections. At the same time, MACN would like to receive feedback on any new innovative or best practices which have been observed for e.g. use of remote technologies which may reduce the opportunity for corrupt demands.

The survey can be accessed here; the deadline for responding is 15 June 2020.
