Periodic & additional inspections

Periodic Inspections are carried out at intervals determined by the ship risk profile.Overriding or unexpected factors might trigger an inspection in between periodic inspections. This category of inspection is referred to as an Additional Inspection. 

Ships become due for periodic inspection in the following time windows:

  • For HRS – between 5-6 months after the last inspection in the Paris MoU region.
  • For SRS – between 10-12 months after the last inspection in the Paris MoU region.
  • For LRS – between 24-36 months after the last inspection in the Paris MoU region.

Periodic Inspections and Additional Inspections count equally. Therefore the time span for the next periodic inspection re-starts after an additional inspection
