MCA: Eleven Foreign Flagged Ships Detained in UK Ports in February

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) announced on March 20 that eleven foreign flagged ships were under detention in UK ports during February 2013 after failing Port State Control (PSC) inspection.

The latest monthly figures show that there were three new detentions of foreign flagged vessels in UK ports during February 2013 and eight vessels remained under detention from previous months. Only six vessels remained under detention at the end of February. The overall rate of detentions compared with inspections carried out over the last twelve months was 3.55%, this is slightly down from January’s twelve month rate.

Out of the detained vessels, six were registered with a flag state listed on the Paris MOU white list, two were registered with a flag state on the grey list, two were registered with a flag state on the black list, one was unregistered and none were registered with a flag state that was not included on the Paris MOU white, grey or black lists.
