Anti-Trust/Competition Law Compliance Statement
  • INTERTANKOs policy is to be firmly committed to
    maintaining a fair and competitive environment in
    the world tanker trade, and to adhering to all
    applicable laws which regulate INTERTANKOs and
    its members activities in these markets. These
    laws include the anti-trust/competition laws
    which the United States, the European Union and
    many nations of the world have adopted to
    preserve the free enterprise system, promote
    competition and protect the public from
    monopolistic and other restrictive trade
    practices. INTERTANKOs activities will be
    conducted in compliance with its
    Anti-trust/Competition Law Guidelines.

  • INTERTANKO Members Goals
  • Zero Detentions
  • Zero Pollution
  • Zero Fatalities

Membership criteria/Best practices
  • 1. ISM/Maintenance Requirement
  • 1.1 Entry of Tank vessels into Membership
  • 1.2 IACS Classification Societies
  • 1.3 Recognised Insurance Cover
  • 1.4 Transparency of Ownership
  • 1.5 State Owned Companies entry criterion
  • 1.6 IMO Voluntary Flag State
  • (When the IMO Voluntary Flag State audits are in
    force, INTERTANKO Members shall register their
    tankers under those flags that have
    satisfactorily completed their latest IMO
    Member State audit and have made public the
    findings and recommendations of the audit. (This
    will be a future criterion as the work on the IMO
    Flag State Audit is not sufficiently advanced
    yet. However, the Council endorsed at its
    meeting in London 10th September 2005 that a flag
    criterion be added in due course and that this
    decision should be made public)

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • In 2005 EQUASIS published their analysis of data
    in the EQUASUS database
  • Port State authorities check the compliance with
    international conventions of foreign ships
    visiting their ports.
  • EQUASIS includes inspection data provided by
    three of the regional port state control regimes,
    Paris MoU, Tokyo MoU and U.S. Coastguard (USCG).
  • INTERTANKO participated actively and provided
    its input

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • The EMSA/EQUASIS 2005 report on detentions is
    grouped into five sections
  • The Fleet Population
  • Classification Societies
  • PI
  • Port State Control
  • Trade Associations, Industry Vetting Programs and
    Shipping Companies.

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • Results of the statistical analysis show that
    those ships with IACS class were less likely to
    be detained in 2005 (3.2) than those with
    non-IACS societies (17.3) or whose IACS status
    has been withdrawn (10.64). By number, half of
    the fleet in the Equasis database is classed with
    an IACS member
  • But by tonnage, ships under IACS class societies
    dominate 90 overall, and 95 for large and
    very large ships.

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • In a similar context, ships insured outside the
    International Group of P I Clubs (IG) were more
    likely to be detained in 2005 (9.24) than those
    inside the Group (3.06) particularly among cargo
  • The Equasis figures indicate 88 of the fleet by
    tonnage is covered by IG insurers

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • A concern of the industry and regulators
  • alike is that ships should not be subject to
  • unnecessarily frequent inspections. The
  • following tables show the level of annual
  • inspections by the three regional port state
  • control regimes which contributed to
  • EQUASIS for the period 2000 to 2005.

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • Table 142 does not indicate a significant
    difference among the three PSC regions

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
Table 141 shows that the number of individual
ships inspected has risen steadily in the period
2000 to 2005. The frequency of inspection of
ships has remained fairly constant with around a
third of inspected ships inspected once and a
third inspected twice in each year.
2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
Source EQUASIS Processed by EMSA
2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • Several professional maritime trade
  • associations and vetting programs supply
  • information to EQUASIS on ships covered by
  • their schemes.
  • Such schemes are either ship-based (e.g. OCIMF)
    or company-based
  • (e.g. INTERTANKO INTERCARGO) and relate to
    certain ships types.
  • They aim to provide a mark of quality for ships
    covered by them.

2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
Table 186 indicates that a majority of relevant
ships are not covered by the vetting schemes and
trade associations providing data to EQUASIS.
However of the large and very large oil,
chemical and gas tankers around one half are
covered by Intertanko while nearly 90 (2213 out
of 2502) are covered by OCIMF.
2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
Further analysis suggests that medium, large
and very large ships covered by one of the
vetting schemes and trade associations are
inspected more frequently than those ships not
covered. For example, large ships covered by
Intertanko were each inspected on average 2.25
times (225,3) compared with 1.53 times (153.5)
for the relevant types not covered by Intertanko.
2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
The following table show the detention rates of
ships covered by each of the schemes compared
with ships of the same type which are outside the
relevant scheme. The detention rate is the ratio
between the number of detentions and the number
of inspections in the Paris MoU, Tokyo MoU and
USCG regions in 2005.
2. The Impact of PSC on the Tanker Industry
  • The EQUASIS analysis shows that the fleet in
    these associations has an impressive safety
    performance record in 2005 as measured by its
    detention rate.
  • For Example, despite being subjected to three
    times as many inspections, the detention rate of
    the INTERTANKO fleet is much lower (1.7) than
    non-Intertanko members (3.1).

3. Optimal Effective PSC
  • INTERTANKO has revised Questionnaire 88
    (Charterers Questionnaire) to take into account
    new information and regular questions that have
    now become current by Brokers, based partly on
    legislative changes over the years.
  • INTERTANKO expects to issue further revised
    editions in the future to ensure that this
    questionnaire remains up-to-date and continues to
    be seen as an industry standard

3. Optimal Effective PSC
  • An important aspect within the revision is a
    question pertaining to CAS, (Condition Assessment
    Scheme), which asks if the vessel has a statement
    of compliance issued under the provisions of the
    Condition Assessment Scheme as relevant to
  • This has being of immense value to port state
    control officers and other industry bodies in
    helping them assess which ships are single hull,
    which are double hull and which have undergone CAS

Coffee Break
3. Optimal Effective PSC
  • INTERTANKO Standard Inspection Feedback
    Forms PSC
  • An essential Feedback System for Continual

3. Optimal Effective PSC
  • Based on comments and cooperation with our
    membership, The INTERTANKO Vetting Committee
    developed a Standard Inspection Feedback form.
  • The purpose of this form is to supply
    confidential information that can be used in a
    constructive statistical manner to assist in
    our ongoing discussions with Port State Control,
    Oil Major Vetting Departments, and establishments
    such as CDI and SIRE.
  • Part 2 of the questionnaire relates to Port State
    Control inspections
  • We encourage INTERTANKO members to supply their
    vessels with a copy of this form with the request
    that the forms be completed for each inspection
    as appropriate.
  • We also request that these forms be completed on
    each occasion that a commercial or PSC inspection
    takes place whether the results are positive or

  • Port State Control Integrity
  • Instances around the world where PSC integrity is
  • Disadvantage to Serious Quality Owners
  • Disadvantage to Professional PSC authorities.
  • Our colleagues at INTERCARGO have developed a
    confidential feedback form to address this.

3. Optimal Effective PSC

colleagues. Seeking independent 3rd party to
confidentially and impartially handle and host
the database for this feedback
3. Optimal Effective PSC
  • Optimising SIRE and CDI
  • To Assist PSC
  • Via Confidentiality agreements with both OCIMFs
    SIRE System for Oil Tankers
  • The CDI Inspection system for Chemical Gas
  • Access is gained to the Statutory information
    contained in the Ship inspection reports
  • PSC can help target inspections towards the
    sub-standard ship and reward the quality
  • Only 3 of PSC authorities use this functionality

3. Optimal Effective PSC
  • The Impact of the Vetting Screening Systems
  • SIRE
  • CDI
  • Commercial Vetting Inspections

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Harmonised standards and training of
  • We still see different standards in different
    parts of the world, a common, level playing feild
    enables all players to understand what is
    required and enable them to meet requirements

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Common, Global, Sub-Standard Targeting Systems
  • Although targeting systems such as used by the
    Paris MoU, USCG and others are effective, we
    still see different targeting systems around the
  • Harmonisation eases compliance
  • Closes loop holes

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Consistent Clear Grounds for Detention
  • Not all PSC Authorities release guidelines
    regarding what is a clear ground for a detention.
  • Level Playing feild
  • No surprises

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Standard Global Independent Detention appeals
  • Port State legal Appeals exist for each state
    BUT a legal appeal is NOT Independent
  • Such a legal appeal is to the same authority
    that detained the ship, impartial?

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Paris MoU Review Board
  • Subsequent to INTERTANKOs meeting with the Paris
    MoU Advisory Board - during 2001
  • We raised our concerns regarding the lack of an
    independent review process in the case where an
    owner feels his vessel has been detained
  • After several Trials by the Paris MoU this
    process came into effect AND has proved
    successful in enabling some detention records to
    be cleaned

3 Goals Good Practice
  • TOKYO MOU Detention Review Board
  • INTERTANKO and its Round Table colleagues wrote
    to the Tokyo MoU proposing that a similar, (To
    the Paris MoU) independent detention review board
    be created within the Tokyo MoU, we are very
    pleased to announce that The Tokyo MoU have now
    instigated such a process and issued guidelines
    on their website http// .
  • Whilst the findings of the Tokyo MoU Detention
    Review Panel are not binding, they may provide
    justification for the detaining port State to
    amend its inspection data already inserted in the
    APCIS system.
  • The recommendation of the Panel can not be used
    as a ground for claiming a financial
  • But it allows for an independent vehicle for a
    detention review.
  • A full overview of the procedures are available
    on the Tokyo MoU web site http//
  • We are very grateful to the Tokyo MoU for taking
    our views and proposals onboard.

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Mediterranean MoU Review Board
  • Subsequent to our meeting presentation to The
    Mediterranean MoU Board, we are pleased to advise
    that the Med MoU has indicated that it proposes
    to instigate an independent detention review
  • (similar to that practised by the Paris MoU).

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Development of rewards / incentives for the Good
  • Ships especially Tankers are still over
    inspected, our aim is too seek rewards for the
    good owner by reduced inspections for the quality
    ship, and increased targeting and inspections for
    sub-standard ships

3 Goals Good Practice
  • Close out of Deficiencies

INTERTANKO is seeking the creation of a system
that will enable deficiencies to be effectively
closed out and shown as such on the EQUASIS web
site. Currently these remain open in EQUASIS
leading to incorrect assessments by users
4. Conclusions
  • We believe PSC is effective
  • BUT - Greater focus on the sub-standard ship
  • PSC Integrity MUST be maintained
  • Rewards for the Quality owner
  • INTERTANKO firmly supports the role of PSC
  • INTERTANKO cooperates with PSC to eradicate
    sub-standard shipping.

  • Thank you for your attention
