Hong Kong registered ships trade worldwide. Every year Hong Kong ships receive Port State Control (PSC) inspections in different ports. Results of these PSC inspections provide good source of feedback for performance improvement.
Ships with good PSC performance demonstrate that they are safely managed. It pays off with less accidents, reduced down time and lower running cost in the long term. To the Hong Kong Shipping Registry, good ship performance strengthen the reputation of Hong Kong as a quality flag. Owners and managers of Hong Kong ships as a whole is also benefited.
The company of a ship plays a crucial role in her PSC performance. Persistent outstanding performance of a company’s fleet is a clear demonstration of their continuous effort in maintaining the fleet quality and implementing management system. The Marine Department recognizes these companies and has been presenting the Outstanding Performance in PSC Awards to the good performers every year since 2008.
