042/15/Stat. Black Sea MOU On Port State Control – Annual Report 2014 – Inspection Data By Flag

Dear Sirs,

Inspections in 2014 were carried out on ships registered under 76 flags. The majority of inspections were Malta (12.5%), Panama (12.30%), and Turkey (8.6%) flagged vessels, with large number from Liberia (7.4%), Russia (6.3%), Marshall Islands (5.9%) and Moldova (5.9%) which represents 56.44 per cent of total inspections, amounted to 2,874 inspections.

In 2014, ships registered under 51 foreign flags were observed to have deficiencies sufficiently serious to impair the seaworthiness and warrant detention. High detention percentage observed Moldova (10.06%), Tanzania (9.76%) and Togo (7.69%) flagged vessels. Table 3 illustrates inspections data by flags exceeding average detention percentage (with inspections more than 10).


Thank you & Best Regards,
