ICS Updates the Flag State Performance Table 2016/2017
The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has published its annual Shipping Industry Flag State Performance Table 2016/2017.
The ICS Table provides an annual overview of the performance of the world’s ship registers against a number of criteria, using data available in the public domain. ICS is keen to draw attention to the impressive number of positive indicators that are now being achieved by those flag states which are used by the vast majority of ship operators.
The purpose of this Flag State Performance Table is two-fold:
- To encourage shipowners and operators to examine whether a flag state has sufficient substance before using it.
- To encourage shipowners and operators to put pressure on their flag administrations to effect any improvements that might be necessary, especially in relation to safety of life at sea, the protection of the marine environment, and the provision of decent working and living conditions for seafarers.
