SUB :-The Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control (PMoU) adopted the principles of the New Inspection Regime (NIR) in May 2009 during its 42nd Committee Meeting

              The New Inspection Regime (NIR) of the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control (PMoU) will come into force from the 01stJanuary, 2011. The result of all inspections from mid 2009 will be taken into account for the application of the new requirements.

         The change primarily incorporates the replacement of the Target Factor (25% of the individual ships calling each member state) with the Ship Risk Profile.

        The Risk Profile classifies ships into Low Risk Ships (LRS) and High Risk Ships (HRS). The profiling is based on various factors including the company performance criteria which is a new parameter introduced in the PMoU.

Attached please find an explanatory text on the NIR, as has been promulgated by the PMoU. The same can be accessed on the net through the following link.
