Background information

In the framework of work package 7 of the EU HEALTHY GATEWAYS joint action, inspections on passenger ships are conducted by inspectors working at the competent authorities of EU Member States, following the procedures described in the European Manual for Hygiene Standards and Communicable Disease Surveillance on Passenger Ships and in Deliverables 1 and 6 of the EU SHIPSAN ACT joint action (www.shipsan.eu), as updated during the EU HEALTHY GATEWAYS joint action.

A common inspection schedule based on target factors (considering historical inspection results and giving priority to ferries and inland navigation vessels) at an EU level is composed annually and agreed to by all participating authorities, to avoid duplicate inspections in the EU ports.

Inspections are conducted according to this annual schedule that is prepared by the competent authorities conducting the inspections, in collaboration with the work package 7 administration team of the EU HEALTHY GATEWAYS joint action.

Shipping companies will receive a 24 hours’ notice prior to the inspection either from the competent authority or the work package 7 administration team. 

The inspection team consists of one or more inspectors fulfilling the criteria and conducting an inspection according to the European Manual for Hygiene Standards and Communicable Disease Surveillance on Passenger Ships. The inspection team may be supported by observers or technical experts, depending on availability and resources. Inspection team prepares the inspection report where inspection findings and corrective actions are included and based on these findings, each inspection receives a letter grade “A”, “B”, “C”, or “D”.

Grading system explanatory note

An inspection grading system methodology was designed and pilot tested, and is applied as of June 2019. The European Manual for Hygiene Standards and Communicable Disease Surveillance on Passenger Ships consists of 526 items, which describe the inspection standards. Each item in the Manual has been given points (1-5) based on a risk analysis method. When an inspection is conducted on board a passenger ship according to the Manual, inspectors check compliance with the standards of this Manual. Inspectors may decide to give points in the inspection findings of non-compliance. As of June 2019, the inspection results will be graded with a letter grade “A”, “B”, “C”, or “D”.  The letter grade corresponds to the total sum of the points given to the inspection findings. The higher the point score, the lower the inspection will be graded.

Grading ranges are as follows:

Grade

Score

A  

≤ 46

B  

47-65

C  

66-82

D  

≥ 83

When a ship obtains a “D” inspection grade, it will be considered unsatisfactory and a follow-up inspection will be conducted.

The competent authorities authorise the leader of work package 7 to publish the list of all ships inspected, highlighting those with “A” inspection grades in the EU HEALTHY GATEWAYS web portal. This list will be updated weekly. Publication of inspection results begins in June 2019.

 

 

Information in the list of ships

The list of ships inspected is updated weekly and contains information about the name of ships that were inspected, the IMO number and the date of inspection. The “List of passenger ships inspected and graded with “A” grade” appears in a chronological order based on inspection date and the list of “All ships inspected” appears in an alphabetical order.
