Ship Sanitation Inspections

Under international health regulations seagoing vessels must receive a ship sanitation inspection at least every 6 months. This inspection includes a food safety element, an assessment of infectious disease controls, an assessment of the ship’s pest free status, sanitation and waste disposal facilities. Welfare provisions for crews are also considered during an inspection.

Ship sanitation inspections are carried out either at the request of the ship’s Master or agent due to the expiry of their present ship sanitation certificate or as part of other risk based ship inspections.

River Tees Port Health Authority will respond to all requests for ship sanitation inspections. Please refer to our fees page for current charges for ship inspections.
