The Danish flag tops safety list

Danish ships once again at the top of the whitelists


Denmark is once again at the top of the latest Paris MoU white list, which shows how the flag states’ ships perform during port state controls in European ports.

The “White, Grey and Black (WGB) List” presents the full spectrum, from quality flags to flags with a poor performance that are considered high or very high risk. It is based on the total number of inspections and detentions during a 3-year rolling period for flags with at least 30 inspections in that period. Find the list here.

The port state control regime Paris MoU has just published their latest performance lists, where Danish ships once again occupy the top position on the white list. Also within Tokyo MoU’s port state control regime (covering Asia), Danish ships are again on the white list. Denmark is also placed on the US Coast Guard’s Qualship 21 list, which covers port state controls in the USA.

Martin John, Director of Ship Survey and Certification at the Danish Maritime Authority:

“It is gratifying that Danish ships year after year maintain a position at the top of the whitelists. It confirms that the Danish flag is characterized by the highest standards for safety, health, environment and working conditions.”

The performance lists are, among other things, based on the last three years of inspections and detentions of ships.
