The best performing RO over the period 2010-2012 is the American Bureau of Shipping followed by Det Norske Veritas and Lloyds Register. Germanischer Lloyd has dropped out of the top 5 and has been replaced by Korean Register.

The worst performing RO is Phoenix Register of Shipping (PH.R.S), located in Piraeus, in Greece. The combination of Sierra Leone and Phoenix Register of Shipping resulted in a 41% detention rate. The Republic of Moldova with Dromon Bureau of Shipping scored a 33% detention rate, followed by Saint Kitts and Nevis and International Register of Shipping with 12%.

The introduction of the New Inspection Regime during 2011 had an impact on the 2012 figures. A decrease in total number of inspections has continued, as well as the total number of deficiencies. Compared to 2011 the detention percentage has stabilized on 3.6%. Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom contribute most to the overall inspection efforts in terms of percentage.

In 2012 a total of 15 ships were banned. 5 less compared with last year. Multiple detentions was the most common reason for banning in 2012.

With 1,090 inspections and 114 detentions the ships flying a:

  • “black listed flag“ score a detention rate of 10.46%
  • “grey listed flag” the detention rate is 6.39% (1,017 inspections, 65 detentions)
  • “white listed flag” 2.99% (16,092 inspections and 482 detentions)
