17 Surprisingly, it's lagging?

17 Surprisingly, lagging?

Recently, a friend asked the editor what the code for a ship detention defect was. Without thinking, the editor rushes out 30 because in PSC inspections in the Asia-Pacific region, Defective Action Code 17 indicates a deficiency that the ship should correct before sailing, and 30 means detention. China, as a member of the Tokyo Memorandum, has been disposing of deficiencies during PSC inspections in accordance with the requirements of the Memorandum. The following chart shows the Tokyo Memo Deficiency Action Codes.

But my friend disagreed with the editorial, saying that in the Paris Memorandum,17 it could refer to both the need to correct defects before sailing and the use of lingering defects. He told the editor that recently a ship was inspected by the PSC at a port in Paris Memorandum and after the inspection the PSCO issued 7 defects and issued a PSC report showing that the action code for 6 of the defects were 17,1 16 and no 30, but the ship was detained. The editor looked up the report and found that it showed the word "SHIP DETAINED", indicating that the ship was indeed detained.

17 Can you also strand a ship?

I am very confused about this, customarily speaking, 17 is for correcting deficiencies before sailing and 30 is for detaining deficiencies, and not only the Tokyo Memo, but the Black Sea Memo and the US Coast Guard use a deficiency action code of 30 when they detain a ship. If 17 is both a pre-sail correction defect and a lingering defect, how do you distinguish between them? The following chart shows the USCG's PSC report.

In order to figure out the reason, I carefully read the PSC report, logged into the Paris Memorandum website to access information, consult relevant people, and gradually figured out the meaning of the Paris Memorandum related to the defective action code, the following will share with you ~

The editor downloads "GUIDANCE ON DETENTION AND ACTION TAKEN" from the Paris Memo website (, which details the use of Deficiency Action Codes, Inspection Action Codes, and Reporting Action Codes.

The guideline deficiency action codes are categorized as follows.

10 (deficiencies corrected)

15 (next port to correct deficiencies)

17 (correction of defects prior to sailing)

21 (ISM category deficiencies corrected within 3 months)

19 (ISM-type detention deficiencies requiring a safety management audit by the competent authority before the ship can sail)

26 (notification to security authorities)

46 (correction of detention defects at agreed ports)

47 (agreed classification society condition to correct defects)

48 (agreed flag State condition to correct deficiencies)

49 (Agreed corrective action plan)

55 (notification to flag State)

65 (cessation of operations)

80 (temporary alternative measures)

81 (temporary repairs)

95 (warning)

96 (warning withdrawn)

99 (other)

Please note that there is no code 30 in it.

With respect to deficiency action code 17, the guidance explains as follows.

It can be seen that code 17 is mainly used for defects that need to be corrected before a ship can sail and whether it can be used for detention is not stated in the guidance.

With respect to "ground for detention", the Guide interprets it to mean every defect used as a basis for detention.

Since the Paris Memorandum does not have a specific action code for detention deficiencies, how is the detention of a vessel reflected in the inspection report? The editor also downloaded the "MODEL FORMS FOR PSC" (PSC report template), and by studying the template, found that if the ship is detained, the relevant marks in the PSC report are as follows.

1.The lower portion of Form A of the PSC report will be marked with the date of issuance of the hold notice.

2.The PSC report has a column for "Ground for Detention" in Form B (the table where defects are recorded), which means that if it is not selected, it means that the corresponding defect needs to be corrected before sailing; if it is selected, the corresponding defect is a detention defect. Considering that the Paris Memorandum does not have a specific action code for lingering defects and that lingering defects also need to be corrected prior to sailing, it is possible to conclude that the defect action code 17 can be used both for defects corrected prior to sailing and for stalling The difference is whether the corresponding "Ground for Detention" is checked or not.

When a ship is detained, the PSCO will also issue a Notice of Detention to the master and the flag state.

In summary, if we look at the PSC report provided by our friend, we can see that the third, fourth, sixth and seventh defects have a code of 17 and are marked in the corresponding "ground for detention" column, indicating that these four defects are lingering defects. And the seventh deficiency is an ISM category detention deficiency, where a safety management audit is required to be carried out by the competent authority before the vessel starts sailing. The first and fifth defects are not marked with "ground for detention" and are defects that need to be corrected before sailing.

At this point, I've finally figured out the meaning of the various deficiency action codes in the Paris Memorandum, and it turns out that 17 can also detain a ship. Are you clear?

This is the end of this push, if you have any questions, welcome to leave a comment, I will promptly answer your questions.
