China - Shanghai MSA Inspection Campaign
23 April 2021
One of the Club’s correspondents in China, Huatai Insurance Agency & Consultant Service Ltd, has issued a Circular setting out details of the CIC, which can be accessed here. The Circular includes the Shanghai MSA Notice and a Report issued by MSA (at Appendix 2) that sets out a non-exhaustive list of the items that may be considered by the CIC. Huatai reports that, in their experience, where there is an incident involving a failure of propulsion and auxiliary machinery failure, a vessel will be detained, including a lengthy COVID19 quarantine depending on the date and location of the vessel’s last port of call.
