INTLREG concluded a successful Crew Accommodation survey for Carnival Cruise Line on behalf of the Panama Administration.
During the inspection of Carnival Miracle, a vessel registered with the Panamanian Flag, each crew member, including the master and full staff, were outstanding in providing assistance in the process. This resulted in a smooth & efficient inspection. During the port stay of a huge Passenger vessel such as this, the crew is extremely busy with multiple activities and tens of other moving parts, yet they managed to find the time to provide continuous support until the inspection was completed. All mandatory areas were checked for the renewal of the Crew Accommodation certification including the Maritime labor (MLC) portion dealing with food under title 3, seating capacities of the mess rooms, bunk capacities, bathroom facility capacities in relationship to the minimum safe manning requirements.
With some exception, every Panamanian flagged vessel of 500 gross tonnage and upward, shall have onboard, at all times, a valid Certificate of Inspection of Crew Accommodation (CICA). CICA was created to guarantee the strict compliance and the effective implementation of national or international Maritime Labor Regulations, related to labor conditions, life, and accommodation of Seafarers on board the vessels registered with the Panamanian Flag.
As an independent organization the International Register of Shipping (INTLREG) continues our ongoing commitment to provide professional services to the maritime industry from the 25 Governmental authorizations in our portfolio.
