Lloyd's Register (LR) has advised shipowners, managers and crews to be prepared for a concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) on Emergency Systems and Procedures.

This three-month initiative is run concurrently by the Riyadh Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), Indian Ocean MoU and Abuja MoU (for the West and Central Africa Region) on Port State Control (PSC).

This follows the previous announcement of the CIC by the Paris and Tokyo MoUs.

The CIC, which runs from 1 September-30 November 2019, aims to ensure that:

  • Ships can respond appropriately and promptly to emergency situations
  • Shipping companies and ship managers are reminded of the importance of ship emergency systems
  • On-board emergency systems are operated properly and managed efficiently
  • Masters and all seafarers understand their assigned roles, duties and emergency procedures and can act immediately when needed.
