Shipowners, masters and the flag states are responsible for ensuring that ships comply with the provisions of the relevant codes, practices and legislation. Therefore, ensuring these requirements are met and implemented effectively at sea is in the best interests of all maritime professionals – both on and offshore. Ships that fail to fulfil their commitments contained in agreed international legal instruments and subsequently sail in an unsafe condition, threaten lives as well as the marine environment. Therefore, it is in the interest of all to develop effective Port State interfaces for the sake of safe shipping.
