The prime responsibility for compliance with the requirements laid down in the international maritime conventions lies with the shipowner/operator; responsibility for ensuring such compliance remains with the Flag State.
The member-countries in each MOU agreed to inspect a percentage of the estimated number of individual foreign merchant ships, which enter their ports.
IMO and ILO conventions provide the basis for inspections under the Paris MOU.
In general ships will not be inspected within six months of a previous inspection in a MOU port, unless there are clear grounds for inspection.
All possible efforts are made to avoid unduly detaining or delaying a ship.
