PSC inspections in regard to ISPS:

During PSC inspections carried out on ships which have to be ISPS certified an inspection of the implementation of the ISPS system will be carried out. In order to have such inspections carried out in a unified manner and scope, IMO has published within the resolution MSC.159(78) about enhancing Maritime Security a number of questions which a Duly Authorized Officer from the port authorities may ask in order to verify the implementation of the system. During a PSC inspection the PSC official will primarily check the ISPS documents for completeness and validity. Within this inspection he may utilize, but is not limited to, a list of questions to ascertain the compliance with the ISPS Code. If clear grounds are established, he shall carry out a more detailed inspection. This checklist is based on relevant questions as proposed by the IMO resolution. Furthermore the list contains the questions from the Concentrated Inspection Checklist which various PSC areas will use. The list may be used onboard for checking the compliance with the ISPS Code for being prepared to pass a PSC inspection without problems and to periodically verify compliance with the regulations of the Code.
