Panama-Flagged Ship Banned from Paris MoU Region

Roll on/roll off (RoRo) vessel City of Tokyo will be refused access to any port and anchorage in the Paris MoU region because it failed to call at indicated repair yard in November, the Paris MoU on Port State Control organization informed.

The organization added that this measure excludes the port and anchorage of the ship’s flag state.

Built in 1987, the RoRo ship flies the flag of Panama, which is white on the current Paris MoU White, Grey and Black (WGB) list.

City of Tokyo was detained in Belgian port of Antwerp on October 23, 2015. A year later, on October 21, 2016, the vessel left the port, however, it failed to call at the repair yard in Dubai as agreed, before November 30, 2016.

In accordance with Section 4.2 of the EU Council Directive 2009/16/EC1, and the provisions of the Belgian shipping act, access to the Paris MoU region will be denied until the provided evidence shows that the ship fully complies with all applicable requirements of the conventions and is satisfactory to the Belgian administration, the organization said.

The Paris MoU consists of 27 participating maritime administrations and covers the waters of the European coastal states and the North Atlantic basin from North America to Europe.
