The Parties to the Convention,
Desiring to promote the safety of ships in general and the safety of fishing vessels in particular,
Bearing in mind the outstanding contribution of the International Conventions for the Safety of Life at Sea and also the International Conventions on Load Lines in promoting the safety of ships,
Recognizing that fishing vessels are exempt from almost all the requirements of those International Conventions,
Desiring therefore to establish in common agreement uniform principles and rules concerning the construction and equipment of fishing vessels directed to the safety of such vessels and their crews,
Considering that this end may best be achieved by the conclusion of a Convention,
Every vessel holding a certificate issued under Regulation 7 or 8 is subject, in the ports of other Parties, to control by officers duly authorized by such Parties in so far as this control is directed towards verifying that there is on board a valid certificate. Such certificate shall be accepted unless there are clear grounds for believing that the condition of the vessel or its equipment does not correspond substantially with the particulars of that certificate. In that case, or if there is not a valid certificate, the officer carrying out the control shall forthwith inform the Consul or, in his absence, the diplomatic representative of the Party whose flag the vessel is entitled to fly, of all the circumstances for which corrective action by that Party would be deemed necessary and the facts shall be reported to the Organization. The officer carrying out the control shall take such steps as will ensure that the vessel shall not sail until it can proceed to sea without danger to the vessel or persons on board.
