In practice, the CIC will mean that during a regular port State control inspection conducted under the targeting matrix criteria within the CMOU region will target aspects of compliance provisions of SOLAS Chapter V and STCW part A C VIII part 4-1, on all vessels regardless of type. In addition, the records of the deck and engine room watch-keepers’ hour of rest will be examined for accuracy under STCW 78 as amended by the Manila Conference.

For this purpose, PSCOs will apply a questionnaire listing a number of items to be covered during the Concentrated Inspection Campaign. An indicative questionnaire of the items that will be checked during this CIC can be found by clicking HERE.

It is expected that the CMOU will carry out approximately 200 inspections during the CIC.
