Port state control (Inglês)

Notwithstanding the numerous provisions dealing with maritime safety and the prevention of pollution at sea contained in various conventions and protocols, some unscrupulous ship-owners still put to sea vessels that are unsafe or are manned by less than competent crews. This disregard for prescribed safety standards and seaworthiness criteria for vessels, driven by greed or motivated by profit in a very competitive industry, has resulted in port states taking enforcement measures to safeguard lives and protect their environment. This note provides an account of the emergence of port state control, a movement which has considerable significance for shipping worldwide and, in the process, highlights the features of the port state enforcement regime in the Asia-Pacific region as an example of the development that may have an impact on future Bank lending in the maritime sector. Heavy on the sustenance of the environment, the movement also has a flavor of the concern for human rights.
