Ten Foreign Ships Detained In UK In March

The UK's Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) last month announced that ten foreign ships were under detention in UK ports during March 2007, after failing Port State Control (PSC) safety inspections.

The latest monthly figures show that there were six new detentions of foreign flagged ships in UK ports during March 2007. Four vessels remained in detention from the previous month.

Detained ships must satisfy surveyors that remedial work has been carried out before they are allowed to leave port.

The overall rate of detentions compared with inspections carried out over the last twelve months remains just below 4.5%, unchanged from February's twelve month rate.

During the month of March, 83 Port State Control inspections were carried out in the UK. A total of 25 vessels had no deficiencies raised against them, 32 had between one and five deficiencies, 16 had between six and ten deficiencies, 8 had between eleven and twenty deficiencies and 2 vessels had more than twenty deficiencies.

Out of the detained vessels, five were registered with flag states listed on the Paris MOU white list and one was registered with a state on the grey list.
