Vessel Dali Passed Previous Foreign Port State Inspections

Understanding Maritime and Port Classification Societies

The container ship Dali is classified by class and was flown under the Singaporean flag in October 2016. Classification societies are generally authorized by a flag administration to monitor compliance to technical standards and applicable regulations by vessels registered under its flag.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore affirms that, at the time of the event, the vessel’s statutory certificates covering its structural integrity and equipment functionality, as well as the necessary classification society, were valid based on records.

In June and September of 2023, the ship also went through and passed two independent inspections by foreign port states. A malfunctioning fuel pressure monitor gauge was fixed during the June 2023 inspection before the ship left the port.

June 2024 is when Dali next statutory surveys and classifications are due.
