Underperforming Ships

For the purpose of bearing down on substandard ships, the Port State Control Committee decided to publish list of under-performing ships which have been detained for three or more times in the Abuja MOU within 12 months.

The under-performing ships are subjected to more frequent inspections at each port of call within the Abuja MOU region. All Member Authorities are on alert to inspect under-performing ships when found.


The Abuja MoU Information System (AMIS) is developed and hosted by the Information and Coordinating Center on Port and Flag State Control of the Russian Federation. The database is designed to collect and store Port State Control (PSC) inspection data from the Abuja MoU Member Authorities and to provide information exchange on PSC data within the region.

Access to the AMIS database provides publication of actual PSC data stored in the database in a real-time mode.

The Abuja MOU (its member Authorities, the Secretariat and the APCIS) will not be held liable for any loss, damage, or harm resulting from the use of information contained in the database, or of any reliance on its accuracy, completeness or timeliness.

The data obtained from this site should not be used for any commercial purposes, reproduced in any other sites or any publications without obtaining prior permission from the Abuja MOU.
