China-Qingdao and Shanghai Ports-Focus on Ships with Mechanical and Electrical Failures by PSCOs

26 April 2023 No.1222

Local authorities in Qingdao and Shanghai ports have recently announced tighter control on ships with mechanical and electrical failures, resulting in some ships being detained consecutively due to PSC inspection. In order to avoid delay to ships’ schedule, ships need to focus more on safety management, particularly on main engine, steering engine, boiler and emergency equipment etc., which need to be properly tested and checked before entering and leaving the port.
