2020 CIC Postponed


The COVID-19 crisis has had a considerable effect on the maritime industry, with limited resources to do necessary surveys and inspection, postponement of the renewal of certificates and difficulties for crewmembers to board ships or take leave.

Every year the Paris and the Tokyo MOUs jointly conduct a CIC on a specific aspect on the safety of shipping. In 2020 the CIC would have focused on Stability (in general), which is scheduled to be held from 1 September to 30 November.

In response to the situation with regard to COVID-19, the members Authorities of the Tokyo MOU, in coordination with the Paris MoU, have decided to postpone the CIC for 2020.

Therefore the schedule for CICs for the coming years will be:

 2020   NO CIC
 2021   CIC on Stability (in general)
 2022   CIC on STCW
 2023   CIC on Fire Safety
