The Korean Register (KR) has launched a new mobile app to help customers prepare for Port State Control (PSC) inspections, called ‘KR PSC Adviser’.
The new service is designed to reduce the risk of PSC detentions by providing seafarers with access to up-to-date PSC information and required checklists within a single app.
The app displays the world map on its main screen, allowing users to check for major PSC deficiencies reported in each region, port by port. Seafarers can search for each deficiency using keywords within the search function.
By informing users of the three most frequent deficiencies at each port, the app should help vessels to avoid being detained by the PSC by allowing them to tackle related issues before arrival, KR notes.
“As a digital classification society, we have been focusing on advancing our services by establishing an Integrated Survey Centre (ISC) and implementing electronic certificate issuance services,” said Yoon Boogeun, Executive Vice President of KR Survey Division.
“The newly launched app was developed to enhance customer convenience and accessibility, and we will continue to do our best to further enhance KR’s services.”
The mobile app is available for both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store.
