Tokyo MOU1 Inspection Campaign


The Tokyo MOU secretariat has announced a three-month concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) from 1st September to 30th November 2005 in order to promote effective operation of shipboard equipment and compliance with pollution prevention and safety procedures. The campaign will target aspects of the operational control provisions of the SOLAS and MARPOL conventions on all vessels, regardless of type.

The Tokyo MOU intends to inspect as many vessels as possible during the campaign and it has developed a standard checklist for PSCOs to use during inspections. Amongst other things, it is likely that PSCOs will examine ship maintenance plans, inspection records, service records, training manuals, incident recording, use of working languages, passage planning, logbook entries, oily water separators and shipboard oil pollution emergency plans (SOPEPs).

Port state control officers (PSCOs) will be carrying out the checks in conjunction with their routine PSC inspections, and it is expected that particular attention will be paid to:
  • maintenance and operation of fire protection and lifesaving appliances
  • crew familiarity with drills and emergency procedures and duties
  • maintenance and operation of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)
  • safety of navigation
  • pollution prevention procedures.

Tokyo MOU currently comprises the following member states and regions: Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Vanuatu and Vietnam.
