PSC Inspections

The results of Port State Control (PSC) inspections are often used by many interested parties for benchmarking and analysis of the performance of individual ships and fleets.

During 2017 ships under the management of Zodiac Maritime Ltd. had 248 PSC inspections in 52 different countries. The majority of these (191) were in ports that are in the 4 Regions as described below.

As a benchmarking exercise we have produced a summary of the last 3 years inspection results (1 Jan 2015 - 31 Dec 2017) for the 3 largest MOUs (Memoranda of Understanding) and the USCG (United States Coast Guard) as described in the table below.
