Deficiency Prevention System (DPS)

Deficiency Prevention System (DPS)

The role of a ship registry is to oversee the registration and documentation of vessels, ensuring that they meet all necessary requirements and standards pertinent to safe operations. Many ship registries also offer additional services to ship owners and operators, such as flag support services. One example of this is the Deficiency Prevention System (DPS) offered by the Palau International Ship Registry (PISR).

The DPS is a program designed to assist vessels in complying with international regulations and conventions, particularly while being inspected by authorities in Paris and Tokyo. PISR’s team monitors and screens vessel operations to identify any risks that might potentially occur. After that, if necessary, the registry sends a Flag State Consultant to assist the vessel’s crew in preparing for inspection and to accompany the authorities during the inspection. The ePISR system also allows ship operators to track the status of their vessel’s deficiencies at all times. The aim of the DPS program is to improve the operational quality and safety of PISR-registered vessels and prevent any unwanted deficiencies. It is often provided at no or low cost to ship owners and operators. PISR always works with all involved parties to ensure that their vessels meet all necessary international regulations and conventions.

Flag support services like the DPS offered by PISR can be a valuable resource for ship owners and operators. Not only do they help ensure compliance with international standards, but they can also provide valuable guidance and support during the inspection process. It is important for ship owners and operators to research and consider the range of services offered by different ship registries before making a decision on which one to use. The benefits to ship owners and operators from utilizing such support services include:

– Ensuring compliance with international regulations and conventions
– Identifying and addressing any potential risks before inspections
– Receiving guidance and support during the inspection process,
– Tracking the status of deficiencies and addressing them in a timely manner,
– Improving the quality of their vessels,
– Receiving services at low or no cost,
– Working with a trusted and experienced team to ensure the success of their vessels.
