LIFE SAVING APPLIANCES WERE THE WORST DEFICIENCIES REPORTED BY PORT STATE CONTROL IN 1988

A brief summary is given of the 1988 annual report of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Port State Control. The report contains strong evidence suggesting that some ship operators are not as safety conscious as they ought to be. The most common onboard deficiency found during all inspections in 1988 was lack of, or inadequate, lifesaving appliances.
