The MCA seeks to undertake eight PMSC health check visits annually, aiming to visit a range of different types of organisation across all parts of the UK.
During 2015, the MCA conducted eight PMSC health checks throughout the UK at the following type of ports:
- 1x Private
- 3x Municipal
- 4x Trust
As a result of the eight health checks conducted during 2015, three organisations were deemed as non-compliant and will receive return visits during 2016 to verify that issues have been addressed.
Future health checks will continue to have a particular emphasis on supporting smaller harbours or ports, particularly under municipal ownership, whilst also including a number of larger ports.
The MCA would encourage industry to take account of the enhancements mentioned in this report and consider if any might be applicable to their organisations.
