Request a follow-up inspection for foreign vessels to rescind a detention order or mark a deficiency, noted under the Port State Control program, as rectified

What you need to know before you apply?

Port State Control inspections require a marine inspector to board a foreign vessel entering Canadian waters to ensure the vessel meets the safety requirements of the major international maritime conventions and also has on board all required documentation. The international conventions that vessels need to comply with include the SOLAS, the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, the International Convention on Load Lines, the Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, and the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006. There is no fee for an initial inspection, as it is risk-based; however, fees are charged for follow-up inspections, including for the rescinding of a detention order.
