Introducing Ship, Manager & Port Specific
PSC Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA)

Given what is at stake in these days and era, it is of paramount importance to assess the forthcoming call with respect to PSC Inspection risks in order to identify probability and severity of a potential inspection and therefore arrive into a Ship, Manager and Port Specific Prioritization Checklist  to assist the manager and office to minimize risk and prepare accordingly.

We have introduced the Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA), an automated process that takes into consideration the following parameters:

With respect to Probability of a forthcoming PSC Inspection in that port, POCRA takes into account

Ship related factors such as:

  1. MoU Ship Priority / Risk Status  Inspection Priority calculation as applied in the specific MoU PSC Regime – considering the ship/manager performance the last 36 months
  2. Ship Detentions Review  worldwide and in the specific MoU

Port Related Factors  such as:

  1. Unique Ships inspected vs Unique Ships called in the PSC Port area for the fleet segment in last 12 months
  2. Unique Ships re-inspected more than once in this port within the last 12 months for the fleet segment – excluding  follow up and re-inspections with more than 15 days apart

With respect to Severity of a forthcoming PSC Inspection in that port, POCRA takes inti accountt

Ship related factors such as:

  1. Ship detentions of last 12 months within the PSC regime as the ship may be a target
  2. Ship Deficiency per Inspection (DPI) vs Global Benchmarking Average (GBA) of the fleet segment and age group ships
  3. Number of common detainable deficiency codes between the ship and Port for the fleet segment
  4. Number of common deficiency codes between ship and Port (Top 20) of the fleet segment

Manager Related Factors  such as:

  1. Manager Record of  Detentions and Manager Deficiency profile in this Port
  2. Ship Record of the ship with with the Manager  (Number of Inspections, DPI/DER and Detentions of the Ship under current manager)
  3. Number of common Manager detainable deficiency codes against Port detainable items of the fleet segment
  4. Number of common Manager deficiency codes against Port top 20 deficiency codes of the fleet segment

Port related factors such as:

  1. Number common ship deficiency codes vs Port Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CiC) in effect corresponding codes
  2. Number common manager deficiency codes vs Port Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CiC) in effect corresponding codes
  3. Number of deficiency codes required in Port deficiency Profile to achieve 80% of total deficiencies of the port for the fleet segment
  4. Check of Port Detention Ratio (DER) vs Global Benchmarking Average (GBA) for the fleet segment
  5. Port Deficiency per Inspection (DPI) vs Global Benchmarking Average (GBA) for the fleet segment
  6. Port Corruption Risk Factor as an assessment based on 3rd party intelligence and algorithmic checks

Ship Manager and Port Specific PSC Call Preparation Checklist

As a result of the Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA) the platform may subsequently provide a detailed insight into which categories should be prioritized with a  detailed listing of the deficiency codes almond with detailed description.

Other Items that may be considered for a full Risk Assessment of a Call at this port

A number of other parameters may be available for the use of a more tailored Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA) with the use of API to incorporate same into an ERP, such as:

  • Codes Check between Ship and Port in all possible subsets i.e. Fleet Segment, All Dry/Wet, All Ships etc.
  • Codes Check between Manager and Port in any combination and all possible subsets i.e. Fleet Segment, All Dry/Wet, All Ships etc.
  • Manager Detention in Port in All Segments, beyond the fleet segment of a ship
  • Manager Detention in MOU/regime in All Segments, beyond the fleet segment of a ship
  • Last call of Manager in Port, irrespective of a ship specific fleet segment
  • Last Inspection of Manager in Port, irrespective of a ship specific fleet segment
  • Last Detention in Port by either ship (under other management) and/or Manager irrespective of Fleet Segment
  • Fleet Segment Targeting compared with other segments
  • Age Group Targeting and issues at port
  • Manager Base Targeting

Automated Detention Elimination Policy (DEP)

There is the option to use the functionality of an API integrating the Next Port of Call with the use of the Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA) to provide an Automated Detention Elimination Policy (DEP), as described in relevant section of the site.

Options to use the Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA)

There are a number of options available to use the Port Call Risk Assessment (POCRA), such as:

  • Incorporated in a Platform License, available on the cloud everywhere
  • Integrate with your ERP via API, a fully tailored solutions to meet exact needs
  • Purchase online as a Stand Alone report, on a case by case basis
