Sterilization of ships

07 Apr 2020 / Aqaba, Jordan

The Jordanian Maritime Commission (JMC) has announced sterilization of ships calling at the port of Aqaba among the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Places to be sterilized, where there is direct contact between ship’s crew and related staff whose work requires entry to the places of subsistence and boarding on board, will be identified and inventoried to reduce the time to as little as possible to ensure no delay in handling of cargo.

Substances to be used in sterilization must have no effect on human health.

The cost of sterilization should not exceed a maximum of 500 JD, despite the high prices of sterilization materials from their source.
