PSC Template

This PSC checklist is based on the 2019 Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) which focuses on emergency preparedness. It also includes the PSC target criteria, where answering yes to some or all questions will increase the likelihood of your ship to be inspected (again). Use this checklist to easily verify adequate emergency systems and procedures such as documentation, operation, and crew familiarization and assess your current standing with the Port State Control.
