UK Ship Register Stays Ahead of Excellence Game

UK Ship Register Boasts USCG Award for Excellence

The UK Ship Register has become one of only around twenty in the world to keep the United States Coast Guard (USCG) award for excellence.

The register, which is administered by the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), regulates and inspects the ships that sail under the UK flag.

It was recognised for the USCG’s Qualship 21 for 2014-15, thanks to an excellent Port State Control record achieved by UK-flagged vessels.

Qualship 21 assesses ships’ safety and pollution prevention records, and is awarded against a stringent set of criteria, including the requirement for a less-than 1% detention ratio over a rolling thee-year average.

The award reduces the likelihood that UK-registered ships will be proactively targeted for future inspection by US Port State Control inspectors.

Head of the UK Ship Register, Debasis Mazumdar, said: ”The Maritime and Coastguard Agency is delighted to have kept Qualship 21 for the UK Ship Register.

The UK Ship Register team works closely with our customers to maintain excellent Port State Control records for ships registered under the UK flag; this success is due in large part to the high standard of service delivered by the MCA’s surveyors and the high quality of ships registered with us.”
