Port State Control (PSC) is the harmonized international inspection system of foreign ships in national ports including territorial seas to verify that the condition of the ship and its equipment comply with the requirements of international regulations and that the ship is manned and operated under these rules. So it requires appropriate Port State Control Officers(PSCOs) to execute this inspection system. However PSCOs in Korea is insufficient in number compared with their workloads, which is based on research about PSC's man power and organization of marine advanced countries such as USA, Japan, China, Australia, UK. On the other hand, analysis on systematic problem of PSC showed that it requires the Act on Port State Control, the training and education of PSCOs, balanced implementation of PSC and enforcement of international activities, establishment of assistant system to PSCOs, qualitative improvement of PSC, establishment of the Department/Team of PSC.
