Port Marine Safety Code – Health Check Trends 2019/20

For all UK Harbour Authorities and other marine berths, terminals, or jetties



This report is designed to provide stakeholders with an insight into emerging trends in compliance identified during the MCA’s health check visits during the two-year period 2019-2020. It also provides examples of best practice that have been observed whilst conducting the latest health check visits. During the two-year period, the MCA conducted sixteen PMSC health checks throughout the UK at the following types of facility:

  • 8 x Municipal
  • 4 x Private
  • 4 x Trust

As a result of these visits, four of the organisations were found to be non-compliant with the requirements of the PMSC to the degree that they will require return visits during 2021 to verify that the issues identified have been addressed.
