USCG Confirms RINA's Top PSC Status

June 25, 2002

Italian classification society RINA has completed another year with zero Port State Control (PSC) detentions in the United States. RINA has had only one U.S. PSC class-related detention in three years, giving it a detention ratio of 0.21 percent in respect of specific vessel arrivals in U.S. ports. It is in the top five best-performing class societies as measured by the Coast Guard, with a zero-rating. As a result of its record, RINA continues to be eligible for U.S. Coast Guard Qualship 21 assignment, which is designed to reward high-quality ships by reducing the frequency of Port State Control inspections in the U.S. Ugo Salerno, RINA CEO, says, "This excellent performance validates our quality strategy, which has seen PSC detention rates on an improving trend worldwide."
