There are numerous different regional agreements in place for port state control. Each one aims to prevent the operation of sub-standard ships. Under these programmes, if a ship fails the inspection of a port authority it may be detained in that port until all the defects on that ship have been rectified. Port State Control provides a detailed analysis of all the issues relating to port state control. It examines each of the regional agreements currently in place; discusses port state control in the UK and USA; considers the recent EC Directive; looks at the ISM code and classification societies and also covers the recent Erika incident and its aftermath. Port State Control also includes coverage of compensation and lengths of detainment.
