Port state control
The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) has been recognised as a top performing major flag state in the Tokyo Memorandum
of Understanding’s (MoU’s) Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific region, which found the rolling average
detention ratio for RMI vessels for the past three years was 2.19 per cent. This is the lowest detention ratio of any of the
top three registries. There were 2,995 RMI vessels inspected in 2019. The high rating awarded by the Tokyo MoU comes on the
back of the US Coast Guard’s recent continuation of the RMI’s QUALSHIP 21 status for the 16th consecutive year.
