The table below contain the U.S Coast Guard's List of Ships Detained for safety related deficiencies. The purpose of publishing this information is to aid the Coast Guard in carrying out its Port State responsibilities. The worldwide goal of Port State Control is to identify substandard vessels not in compliance with International Conventions.
The List of Ships Detained includes the vessel name, IMO number, date of detention, ship type, port, flag, Recognized Organization (Only for Safety), Recognized Security Organization (Only for Security) and deficiency summary.
The detention lists are subject to change without notice based on appeals made by the owner, operator, and/or classification society, and will be updated as cases are validated. A detention decision may be appealed under the provisions of Title 46, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1.03. Furthermore, if a party believes they are not the owner, operator or managing operator of a vessel detained under the Coast Guard's Port State Control Authority, they should immediately provide the Port State Control Office with the documentation to substantiate their belief. However, all provisions of the detention will remain in effect while an appeal is pending.
All recognized organizations appealing their association with a vessel detention should contact:
