The New Inspection Regime (NIR) assigns Ship Risk Profile (SRP) to every individual ship available in the IOCIS database, based on recorded PSC inspection data of key performance parameters (KPIs) for running 36 months. The SRP assigned to the ship is High Risk Ship (HRS), Standard Risk Ship(SRS) and Low Risk Ship (LRS) based on 'Ship Risk Profile Calculation Matrix', that considers running 36 months PSC inspection data
of performance parameters such as Type of Ship, Age of Ship, Flag State Performance, RO Performance, Company Performance and Ship performance (w.r.t. deficiency and detentions). Each performance parameter is evaluated for certain criteria using appropriate ratio formulae. Evaluated value is compared with IOMOU average and then weighting points are assigned thereof. Based on parameter criteria and their weighting points, Ship is marked as HRS, SRS (Neither HRS nor LRS) and LRS.
Inspection and Selection Scheme
Periodic inspections are carried out at an intervals determined as per SRP.
Overriding or Unexpected factors might trigger an inspection in between periodic inspections and is referred to as an Additional Inspection.
For carrying out periodic inspections, time window is based as per SRP and is as follows:
For HRS between 5-6 months after the last periodic/additional inspection.
For SRS between 10-12 months after the last periodic/additional inspection.
For LRS between 18-24 months after the last periodic/additional inspection.
For selection of inspections the priority is based as per SRP and is as follows:
Priority I (P-I): ships must be inspected for which the time window has been closed or there is an overriding factor.
Priority II (P-II): ships may be inspected which is within the time window of inspection or the port State considers there is an unexpected factor warrants an inspection.
No Priority (NP): Time Window is yet to open and no overriding/ unexpected factor(s).
The priority and the level of selection will be shown for each ship in the information system of IOMOU.
