Port State Control Detention Lists


In addition to Port State Control (PSC) inspections, publication of PSC detention lists is considered to be an effective measure in eliminating sub-standard shipping. The Port State Control Committee of the Tokyo Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has decided that the regional PSC detention lists to be published in an on-line mode from January 2007, as such could provide the public with more timely information on detentions. The address of the Tokyo MOU web-site is http://www.tokyo-mou.org.
