The overall rate of detentions compared with inspections carried out over the last 12 months is 7.2% which is a decrease of 0.2% on the detention rate to July. Three out of the four vessels detained during the month were registered with flags targeted by the Paris MOU. The ships detained in August included:- • an Albanian registered, 1105 GT, general cargo ship for 4 days due to ISM DOC and SMC expired and nautical charts and publications out of date. • an Estonian registered, 657 GT general cargo ship due to the poor condition of the ships hull structure.
