Based on Improved New Inspection Regime (I-NIR) ship targeting model of Tokyo MoU, the impact of Port State Control (PSC) on container ships was assessed. Ship targeting is the first step in PSC. The proper method to target ship can help to find sub-standard ships and improve inspection efficiency. Through analyzing the data in recent 6 years, comparing the PSC overview of container ships both under old as well as new NIR models, and taking advantages of case study to evaluate the impact on ship risk level, the results show that I-NIR has a great impact on the inspection frequency and risk level of container ships in the Asia-Pacific region. Relevant shipping companies should actively adjust the strategy to prepare for PSC with the new characteristics under I-NIR.
