What is a concentrated inspection campaign (CIC)?

A campaign at least once a year when regional port State control authorities, sometimes jointly (e. g. the Paris MoU together with the Tokyo MoU), conduct inspections focused on an agreed particular area of concern, or when new requirements have entered into force.

Past Paris MoU CICs have focused on: communication equipment (in 2005); MARPOL Annex I (2007); ISM Code (2007); SOLAS Chapter V – Safety of Navigation (2008); lifeboat launching arrangements (2009); tanker damage stability (2010); structural safety and the International Load Lines Convention (2011); and fire safety systems (2012).
