Port State control has become of ever-increasing importance in the field of maritime safety and marine pollution prevention and thus in the work of IMO over the past few years. Since the adoption in 1981 of Assembly resolution A.466(XII) on procedures for the control of ships, a number of relevant resolutions have been adopted.
The IMO Sub-Committee on Flag State Implementation, recognizing the need for a single comprehensive document, reviewed and amalgamated existing resolutions and documents. This resulted in the adoption, in 1995, of resolution A.787(19), Procedures for port State control.
The resolution provides basic guidance to Administrations on the conduct of inspections, in order to promote consistency in the conduct of inspections worldwide and harmonize the criteria for the application of control procedures. The General Procedural Guidelines for Port State Control Officers are of particular relevance.
Amendments were adopted by the Assembly in November 1999 by resolution A.882(21). This publication contains the consolidated text of resolution A.787(19), incorporating the amendments adopted by resolution A.882(21). It also includes updated information on contact addresses of responsible national authorities.
