PSC Ready app prepares ships for Port State Control Inspections

In early 2018 Bureau Veritas is launching an interactive app to support captains, crews and fleet managers in preparing vessels for port state control inspections. The app is currenly being tested with a few pilot shipowners prior to making it generally available.

PSC Ready helps prevent port detentions and enables easy verification of compliance with IMO regulations. It enables users to prepare for port state control inspections, and identify the main risks by comparing statistics on top deficiencies. Users can stay up-to-date with PSC and campaign news to better plan inspection activity.

The app facilitates self-inspections by providing users with Bureau Veritas checklists. Moreover, shipowner users can create tailor made checklists or define specific inspections based on the concentrated inspection campaigns organized by MOUs. Once an inspection has been performed, ships and fleet managers are able to analyze the results, follow up with corrective actions and share reports.

PSC Ready will be accessible via phone, tablet or desktop and available for download for both iOS and Android.
