Report of the 2014 CIC on STCW Hours of Rest

From 1st September 2014 to 30th November 2014, the BS MOU carried out a Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on STCW Hours of Rest throughout the region. This campaign involved all member States of the BS MOU and was conducted in conjunction with the Tokyo MOU and Paris MOU. The Paris MOU Guidelines and Questionnaire were utilized.

During the campaign, a total of 1,146 inspections were carried out with the CIC questionnaire involving 1,146 individual ships. Of this quantity 21 ships were detained with 6 (28.57%) detentions were being within the CIC scope. This means that in 6 cases the watch-keeping personnel hours of rest are not meeting STCW 78 (as amended ) requirements and had deficiencies, which were serious enough to detain the ship, resulting a CIC-topic related detention rate of 0.52 per cent.

A total of 168 deficiencies have been recorded as a direct result of this campaign. The overall number of CIC-topic related deficiencies per inspection was 0.15.
