At its 50th meeting last month, the Paris MoU Committee approved the 2016 inspection results and adopted new performance lists for flags and Recognized Organizations. These lists will take effect from 1 July 2017.
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 over a 3-year rolling period for flags with at least 30 inspections in the period.
On the “White, Grey and Black list” for 2016, a total number of 73 flags are listed: 42 on the “White List”, 19 on the “Grey List” and 12 on the “Black list”. In 2015 the number of flags listed totalled 73 flags also; 43 on the “White List”, 19 on the “Grey List” and 11 on the “Black List”.
