Being detained is something no ship operator, manager or master wants to happen to their ship. A quick review of the Paris Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) monthly report will reveal that ‘deficiencies in nautical publications’ are a frequent reason for the detention of ships. In fact the Paris MoU Annual Report for 2013 states nautical publications as the second most frequent reason for detention, with a startling 1,432 deficiencies in one year. These recorded deficiencies range from a failure to update to the presence of previous editions on board.

In fact, PARIS MoU – a leading Port State Control Organisation – is one of the many authorities highlighting an increase in non compliance, with the percentage of deficiencies recorded under their ‘Safety of Navigation’ category rising to 13.98% in 2013.
