New Inspection Regime (NIR) of the Tokyo MOU
The Isle of Man Ship Registry is delighted to announce that it has achieved the low risk criteria under the New Inspection Regime (NIR) of the Tokyo MOU which comes into force on 1st January 2014. In order to attain this status flags must have a minimum of 30 inspections in a three year period, be on the Tokyo MOU whitelist and have undergone an IMO Voluntary Audit (VIMSAS). This low risk status will remain effective until 30th June 2014, when the entry criteria will be re-assessed.
The Isle of Man is one of only 23 flags that have achieved inclusion on the list. The NIR operates in a manner similar to that of the Paris MOU on Port State Control, in which the Isle of Man is also classed as a low risk Flag and will allow for vessels that meet certain criteria to have increased time between inspections by Port State Control Officers within member states of the MOU.
