Statutory Alert: New inspection requirement for ships trading in the Paris MOU area
Applicability: Owners, managers and operators of vessels flagged with St. Vincent and the Grenadines

The St. Vincent and The Grenadines Maritime Administration has issued Circular No. PSC 033 which requires additional inspections (termed ‘occasional surveys’) to be carried out for all vessels whose next port of call is within a Paris MOU member country. The circular only applies to vessels if they have been detained by port state control authorities within the last three years. 

The Administration has stated that a vessel will be deleted from its Registry if:

  • an occasional survey is not carried out when required
  • a vessel is detained twice by a maritime authority member of the Paris MOU within a six month period. 

What to do now
To determine if your vessel requires an occasional survey prior to departure for a Paris MOU member country, please take a look at this flow chart. If an occasional survey is required, please contact your local Lloyd’s Register Group office.
