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 2014 there were 248 PSC inspections carried out on board ships managed by Zodiac Maritime and these are all monitored and analysed in order to benchmark our performance and identify ways in which we can improve our performance.

We believe that vessels under the management of Zodiac Maritime Ltd. have a good Port State Control inspection record, which we believe compares well with other ship managers and the best performing flag states.

A summary of the last 3 years (1 Jan 2012 - 31 Dec 2014) of PSC inspection results is provided in the table below.

Zodiac Maritime will publish the results of our PSC performance on our web site on an annual basis. We will benchmark this performance against other published data where it is available.

US Coastguard

Qualship 21 is a USCG initiative which aims to identify high quality ships and provide incentives to encourage high quality operations.

On the 26th July 2012 we received confirmation from the US Coast Guard that 27 of our managed vessels had achieved the Qualship 21 qualifying criteria.
