Port State Control

Home >> Our Services >> Port State Control

The Authority performs Ghana's obligations as a contracting party to the International Convention on the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and is therefore required to perform port state inspections on all foreign ships calling at Ghanaian ports including the offshore terminals. The inspections are to ensure that all foreign ships that call to do business at our ports are seaworthy and operate in accordance with the standards and regulations relating to safety, security and marine environment pollution prevention. In order to fulfil this mandate effectively Ghana has also signed up to the Abuja Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control which aims at making the sub region unattractive for sub-standard ship operations.


Eleven (11) Bulk and three (3) Reefer and One (1) Multi- purpose, were inspected that is 73% and 20% respectively.
