The Tokyo MOU will introduce the new inspection regime (NIR) from 1st January 2014.
The following information and materials are provided for provision of transparent information on and facilitation of better understanding of the NIR.
The information sheet below provides detailed explanations on ship risk profile, ship risk profile inspection window and company performance:
In accordance with procedures of the NIR, an up-to-date list is published on this page of flag States which meet the flag criteria for a low risk ship (white list + VIMSAS).
Flags who's total number of inspections over a 3-years rolling period does not reach the minimum of 30 are not included in the Tokyo MOU Black-Grey-White list. Consequently some flags cannot meet the criteria for their ships to qualify as Low Risk Ships under the Tokyo MOU, despite having undergone the IMO VIMSAS audit.
The listing of flags having met the flag criteria for a Low Risk Ship is for Tokyo MOU inspection purposes only and should not be used in any other context.
Effective until 30 June 2017 (Based on information & confirmation received by 27 June 2016.)
