  • In 2006, the overall Flag State performance improved in terms of detentions, decreasing from 127 to 110, and the 3-year rolling average detention ratio decreased from 2.00% to 1.78%. The Panamanian, Liberian, and Maltese flags had the most safety-related detentions. However, their detention ratios were about average given the size of their registries. Thirty-four Flag States had one or more detentions. Of the State Flags subject to detentions this year, Cambodia, Honduras, Saint Vincent, and the Grenadines had the highest 3-year detention ratios.
