ParisMoU (mainly countries in Europe and Canada) has carried out an inspection drive for three months. Twelve questions related to navigation safety were asked. A total of almost 6000 checks were made, resulting in 81 operating bans relating to the issues in the drive, and 1872 deficiencies registered.
These were as follows (on a falling scale):
• Deficiencies in sea charts and publications.
• Deck cargo that obstructs view.
• Navigation equipment out of action.

The most remarkable finding was the high incidence of deck cargo obstructing the view and navigation equipment not working.
