At its 50th meeting last month, the Paris MoU Committee approved the 2016 inspection results and adopted new performance lists for flags and Recognized Organizations. These lists will take effect from 1 July 2017.

The “White, Grey and Black (WGB) List” presents the full spectrum, from quality flags to flags with a poor performance that are considered high or very high risk. It is based on the total number of inspections and detentions over a 3-year rolling period for flags with at least 30 inspections in the period.

On the “White, Grey and Black list” for 2016, a total number of 73 flags are listed: 42 on the “White List”, 19 on the “Grey List” and 12 on the “Black list”. In 2015 the number of flags listed totalled 73 flags also; 43 on the “White List”, 19 on the “Grey List” and 11 on the “Black List”.

The “White List” represents quality flags with a consistently low detention record. Compared to 2015, the number of flags on the “White List” has decreased by one.

Flags with an average performance are shown on the “Grey List”. Their appearance on this list may act as an incentive to improve and move to the “White List”. At the same time flags on the “Grey List” should be careful not to neglect control over their ships and risk ending up on the “Black List” next year.

A total number of 19 flags are recorded on this year’s “Grey List”. Last year the “Grey List” also recorded 19 flags. A new flag on the “Grey List” is the Republic of Korea, which last year was on the “White List”. this year Saint Vincent and the Grenadines moved from the “Black list” to the “Grey list”.

Palau and Vanuatu have also moved from the “Grey List” to the “Black List”.
