The Liberian Registry announced it has become the first ship registry to sign onto the Neptune Declaration on Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change, joining over 300 maritime organizations in a global call to action to end the crew change crisis caused by COVID-19.
Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) recently received an Approval in Principal (AIP) of its “Digital Twin READY” Type-B LNG fuel Tanks.
The Liberian Registry expressed its opposition against the proposal from the European Union Parliament on the implementation of a separate, unilateral set of regulations, in the instance of the Emissions Trading System (ETS) scheme for international shipping.
Liberia Maritime Authority advises operators to lookout for possible sightings of vessels engaged in human trafficking in the Andaman Sea and the northern part of Straits of Malacca including coastal areas off Bangladesh/off Myanmar.
Due to the decreased ability to conduct crew changes, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and global restrictions, the Liberia Maritime Authority has issued Marine Advisory to assist ship operators and owners that may be experiencing cases of Crew serving aboard with expired certificates and endorsements.
The Liberian Registry announced it is providing online, real-time access through a ‘single window’ to data on all statutory certificates issued by Class and its Recognised Organisations (RO), through a new data exchange with ROs.
Following the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and the major crew changes issue that has arise, Liberian Registry continues its efforts for seafarers’ designation as “key workers”. Specifically, Liberia is looking to enlist the help of other flag States under this mission.
The Liberian Registry announced implementation of the first ever remote Annual Safety Inspection (ASI) aboard their ships, in a bid to adjust to the COVID-19 disruptions. The Registry successfully completed the first remote ASI this past week.
Given that the fishing season in the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port area will start soon, the Liberian Registry issued guidance of shipping stakeholders to assist Liberian flagged vessels and provide additional information to assist Master’s in safely navigating highly congested waters off Ningbo-Zhoushan in the East China Sea.
The Liberian Registry announced its Expedited Registration Process, ERP, effective as of 1 January 2020, in an effort to further simplify the registration and re-registration of vessels in the Registry. According to a recent statement, the new process reduces the number of requirements, and allows for technology and digital files to replace administrative work, creating a more simplified process overall.
