With the joint press release dated 1 August 2019, the Paris and Tokyo MoUs published the questionnaire for this year’s Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC). The Black Sea, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean, Riyadh and Vina del Mar MoUs will perform this CIC as well.
The questionnaire contains ten technical questions and one administrative question, and the CIC is focusing on the importance of regular training for different emergency scenarios as well as the proper maintenance of technical systems to ensure the readiness of crew equipment in case of any emergencies. It aims to reduce the high number of detainable deficiencies, in particular related to emergency generators, emergency fire pumps, and records of drills.
