The State of Israel implemented the Port State Control (PSC) inspection system in 1997, in accordance with International Maritime Organization (IMO) and International Labor Organization (ILO) resolutions.
PSC inspections are conducted to ensure that foreign vessels calling at Israeli ports comply with international regulations and conventions.
Israel is a signatory of the regional PSC organization, the Mediterranean Memorandum of Understanding. Fellow signatories are Algeria, Cyprus, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Tunis and Turkey.

The Administration of Shipping and Ports is responsible for all PSC activities, and aims to inspect each and every tanker and passenger ship arriving at Israeli ports, as well as 25% of the container ships and general cargo, with an emphasis on bulk carriers.
