Analysis of consolidated audit summary reports (CASR)


In November 2020, MEPC 75 concurred with the decision taken by MSC 101 to endorse the outcome of the analysis of the first CASR, which identified the five main areas of recurrent findings and observations and related specific issues; the highest numbers of references recorded against specific provisions of the mandatory instruments; and the four main areas of root causes, along with the associated specific difficulties experienced by Member States that led to a majority of shortcomings.

The full analysis of the first CASR from 18 mandatory audits conducted in 2016 under the IMO Member State Audit Scheme (IMSAS), as prepared by the Secretariat is shown in document III 5/INF.3, dated 20 July 2018.
