Port State Control

Port state control (PSC) is required to inspect and check the foreign ships. The foreign ships are surveyed thoroughly in national ports. They are responsible to check the condition of the ships.

The co-ordination helps that the ships are inspected accordingly. There could be many ships but their time and delay also is the responsibility. The inspection has to be carried out in such a way that the ships are not delayed. The standards of the ship are maintained by the flag state but the duty of port states is to provide a safety net so that they know about the ships which are below standards and does not maintain the class and standard.
