PSC Inspections Seminar - Be Prepared

Alpha Marine Consulting Turkey will be holding its next seminar on the important topic of Preparations for PSC Inspections. As all involved in the safe management of ocean going vessels will be very well aware this topic is an extremely important and deliciate one and it is for this reason that we at AMC Turkey have added this to our schedule of seminars. The Seminar will be delivered by Mr Dimokritos Tziritis who is a retired senior Hellenic Coast Guard Officer having first hand experience in PSC inspections anf how the PSC Officers carry out these inspections, what they look for during such inspections as well as the methodology of these inspections.

PSC aims, through a system of harmonized inspections to ensure compliance with international regulations and to abolish substandard ships. Taking into consideration that only Internationally Accepted Conventions shall be enforced during PSC inspections, the course focuses on the implementation of this legislation on the field.

The basic topics to be analyzed in the seminar are:


  • Introduction to PSC Inspections
  • Procedures for PSC
  • Observations during PSC Inspections
  • Examination of ISM / ISPS / MLC Codes during PSC Inspections
  • Paris MoU - New Inspection Regime (NIR)
  • PSC Findings

Emphasis will be given on practical issues based on longstanding experience of Alpha Marine personnel assisting vessels’ crew to go through PSC Inspections. Such topics are:          


  • Why so much focus on PSC?
