PSC area of focus


Manning levels and crew qualifications

  • Do you have enough qualified officers and ratings onboard?
  • Are their certificates, endorsements and medical fitness certificates in date?
  • Are your crew taking enough rest?

These areas are all coming under scrutiny with the latest Port State Control (PSC) Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) in force between September 1st and November 30th 2022.

Port State Control (PSC) Concentrated Inspection Campaigns (CICs) take place every year, from 1 September for a period of 3 months. They are usually initiated by the Paris and Tokyo MoUs, with other PSC regimes following suit.

From first hand experience, manning levels and qualification reporting are often managed through Excel spreadsheets or basic software systems that do not take account of qualifications missed during the onboarding phase, or perhaps removed from the database and not replaced.

In-house technical expertise is usually required to identify unfamiliar foreign qualifications and determine safe manning levels for the vessel.

Unfortunately, without exception based reporting or a comprehensive maritime compliance team, these areas are often riddled with errors.

At Crewdentials, we're developing cutting edge technology that reduces non-compliance risks associated with manning and certification. It is an area that will hugely benefit from a degree of automation.

Digital analysis and auto-recognition of certificates is already a core part of our offering, visual analytics and reporting is another, but there’s a lot more to come over the next few months!
