2023 Paris MoU Annual Report “Progress and performance; highlights of the Paris MoU 2023"

The Paris MoU has published its 2023 Annual Report on 1 July 2024. This report provides an overview of the activities and statistics of the Paris MoU in 2023.

Some of the highlights of the report are set out in the press release below.

A summary of the Annual Report 2023 is also available on-line at: https://parismou.year.report/

One of the important developments during the year was that, as of 1 July 2023, the Maritime Authority of Montenegro became a member of the Paris MoU on Port State Control. This resulted in the strengthening of the safety net formed by the joint efforts of the members of the Paris MoU throughout the region and particularly in the Adriatic Sea. Ships with cargo destined for mainland Europe now have virtually no choice but to discharge that cargo in a port falling within the scope of the Paris MoU. This means that these ships are subject to the risk-based inspection methodology of the Paris MoU.
