ClassNK releases Port State Control Annual Report

ClassNK has released its annual report on Port State Control (PSC). The report is prepared to enhance awareness of the present state of PSC and improve future onboard maintenance and inspections as well as Safety Management Systems.

The report includes statistics and data analysis on ships detained by PSC, as well as typical defective photos. In 2023, 419 PSC detentions were reported for 398 ships classed by ClassNK. ‘Fire safety deficiencies’ such as ‘fire-dampers’, ‘fixed fire extinguishing installation’, and ‘fire pumps’ were pointed out as the most commonly detainable deficiencies.

ClassNK will continue its efforts to eliminate substandard vessels by providing information related to port state control, as well as ‘PrimeShip-PSC Intelligence’, which is a tool for supporting the improvement of port state control performance and ship management system.
