APRIL 20, 2017 — The Danish Maritime Authority will hold three meetings on Port State Control (PSC) inspections this year, one of them conducted in English.

Held for shipowners’ shore-based and ship-based employees, the purpose of the meetings is to engage in a dialogue on onboard safety and on how ships can prepare for PSC inspection and ​avoid unnecessary non-conformities .

Among other things, the Danish Maritime Authority will go through the non-conformities most frequently found in PSC inspections, present the Danish authorities’ way of performing PSC inspections and explain how shipowners can help the crew handle PSC inspections. The Danish Maritime Authority will also look at current issues, such as the latest developments on the Ballast Water Management Convention and its importance to Danish ships.

The meeting conducted in English will be held in Svendborg (Copenhagen) on May 24, from 10 am to 2 pm, at SIMAC, Graaesvej 27 in Svendborg.

The meetings conducted in Danish will be held in Aarhus on June and in Valby on June 8.

A maximum of two persons can attend per shipowner and registration is required by emailing Tanja Schneider ([email protected]) no later than by Wednesday May 15, 2017.
