French Authorized Ports to issue Ship Sanitation Certificates temporarily removed from the authorized port list

In view of the French new national regulations regarding the health inspection system for ships, France is temporarily unable to issue health certificates and the current list of French ports to issue SSCs is obsolete. 
Nevertheless, in order to prevent French and foreign vessels from being penalized during an inspection abroad, a temporary attestation explaining the situation has been drawn up by the French government and will be issued to vessels applying for a health certificate.

A new list of French ports authorized to issue the SSCs will be soon published on WHO website, the corresponding information will be announced on PAGNET.
