How can a ship be detained under the PSC inspection?

  • Where a ship in port appears to be dangerously unsafe or in case of deficiencies which are clearly hazardous to safety, health or the environment, she can be detained.
  • When a ship is in clear contravention with the IMO codes or the health and the well being of the people on board is in danger, she can be detained.
  • Pollution offences would also detain the ship.
