With stricter enforcement of rules and regulations in the shipping industry, achieving excellent Port State Control (PSC) performance remains a challenge for all ship owners and managers. Regular maintenance on board and having a detailed focus on the most frequent deficiencies are keys to reducing the number of deficiencies and avoiding detentions.
In this episode of the Live from Singapore Webinar Series, we have invited distinguished speakers from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) and BHP Maritime, in addition to our DNV GL expert, to share their views and experiences on PSC performance during COVID-19 and how to improve safety and quality.
This session covers,
- The impact of COVID-19 on PSC inspections
- A charterer's approach to PSC
- Hot topics for PSC in Australia
- How to improve PSC performance
The host for this session was Martin Cartwright, Business Development Manager, Region South East Asia, Pacific and India, DNV GL - Maritime. Presenters and panellists included Claudia Ohlmeier, Group Leader, PSC, DNV GL - Maritime, Andrew Watt, Principal for Supply Chain Sustainability, BHP Maritime, as well as Grant Judson, Manager, Ship Inspections & Registrations, AMSA.
