Lifeboats & Lifeboat-launching App. Inspections


The Committee of the Indian Ocean MOU has recently agreed to conduct a concentrated inspection campaign on lifeboats and lifeboat-launching appliances in order to ensure that seafarers operating in the Indian Ocean region have access to appropriate equipment in times of emergency. The campaign will be conducted between May 1 and July 31, 2006 and will target vessels to which the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention applies – namely all passenger vessels and cargo vessels of 500 gross tonnes (gt) and above. Indian Ocean MOU member authorities will inspect as many of these vessels as possible during the campaign period.

Port state control officers (PSCOs) will carry out the checks in conjunction with their routine PSC inspections, paying particular attention to the condition of the lifeboats and lifeboat-launching appliances, along with associated maintenance and training records, to verify that the equipment meets the standard required by SOLAS. For the purpose of uniformity of inspection, PSCOs will use a standard checklist prepared by the Indian Ocean MOU. On completion of the campaign, the Secretariat of the Indian Ocean MOU will publish a summary of the results in the form of a press release.
