The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) announced that six foreign flagged ships remained under detention in UK ports during April 2022 after failing Port State Control (PSC) inspection.

To remind, inspections of foreign-flagged ships in UK ports are undertaken by surveyors from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. When a ship is found to be not in compliance with applicable convention requirements, a deficiency may be raised. If any of their deficiencies are so serious, they have to be rectified before departure, then the ship will be detained. All deficiencies should be rectified before departure.
