Pre-PSC Inspections – preparedness and assistance

Pre-PSC Inspections aim to attend to a possible PSC-targeted ship before officers come on board to avoid PSC deficiencies and detentions. We are also present during the PSC inspection to help and assist either the Master or PSC officer, to prevent major remarks and solve any possible issue as they arise.

PSC preparedness

We can attend any type of ship or vessel to conduct a quick inspection to check all the items subject to PSC remarks. We try to fix issues before PSC board the vessel. In case that it is not possible, we explain, assist and help PSC officers and Master in a proactive manner to avoid deficiencies and detentions.

We carry on PSC preparedness services on behalf of  owners, ship managers, operators and Flag States and we represent them as part of their company, like superintendents or representatives.

PSC preparedness scope

PSC preparedness scope is to prepare the vessel for a PSC inspection, accompany the PSC officers, assist Master and Chief Engineer during their inspection, and avoid detention and any deficiencies to be written on their report. However, depending on the circumstances, the pre-PSC is also a service to train and assess the crew to improve the vessel’s PSC performance in future.
