The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has published the latest version of its Flag State Performance Table.
The analysis includes how administrations deliver against a number of criteria such as port state control records, ratification of international maritime Conventions and attendance at IMO meetings. This year, a new criteria on participation in the ‘IMO Member State Audit Scheme’ has been included.
The ICS has also released a new interactive version of the Table, which contains a search facility and allows users to compare and contrast the performance of up to four flag states at a time.
