The Paris MoU Committee has adopted new performance lists for flags, moving Palau and Vanuatu to the Black List from the Grey List.

Additionally, the Republic of Korea, which last year was on the White List, was moved to the Grey List, while Saint Vincent and the Grenadines moved from the Black List to the Grey List.

The new performance lists, which were adopted following the approval of the 2016 inspection results at Paris MoU’s 50th meeting in May, will take effect from July 1, 2017.

A total number of 73 flags are listed on the White, Grey and Black (WGB) List for 2016, 42 of those are on the White List, 19 on the Grey List and 12 on the Black List.

The WGB List is based on the total number of inspections and detentions over a 3-year rolling period for flags with at least 30 inspections in the period.

Furthermore, the Committee has been closely monitoring the performance of classification societies acting as Recognised Organisations, ROs, for flags. A minimum number of 60 inspections per RO is needed before the performance is taken into account for the list. In 2016 there are 33 ROs recorded on the performance list.

Compared with last year’s performance level, this year none of the ROs have been placed in the very low performing part of the list. Four ROs have been placed in the low performing part, against 1 last year, and 19 ROs have been placed in the medium part of the list, compared to 22 last year.
