The Liberian Registry and the International Chamber of Shipping assisted the holder of a Liberian mortgage to overturn a decision of the Brazilian courts which could have had serious consequences for the international shipping industry.
According to a statement by the Liberian Registry, the International Transport Workers Federation has acknowledged Liberia as a quality flag, during a meeting at ITF headquarters in London.
The Liberian Registry has launched a Cyber and Ship Security Computer-Based Training programme, aiming to provide a comprehensive overview of cyber-security issues, including concepts such as malware, network security, identity theft, risk management, and other common threats to maritime security.
ClassNK has expanded the scope of the electronic certificate service for classification and statutory certificates, to include the flag states of Panama, Singapore, and the Marshall Islands, starting from 15 September 2017.
ClassNK said that it will commence operation of the world’s first comprehensive electronic certificate service for classification and statutory certificates, starting from 15 June 2017. The service, ClassNK e-Certificate, will first be made available to Liberian-flagged vessels on the ClassNK register exclusively.
In order to reduce the administrative burdens associated with the sending and onboard storing of numerous certificates, coupled with the goal of making certificate information easier to retrieve, ClassNK developed the “ClassNK e-Certificate” system. Now, ClassNK is the first classification society to be authorized by the Liberian Registry to issue certificates in electronic form.
The Liberian Registry announced that has passed the historic milestone of 150 million gross tons, confirming its position as the second largest ship registry in the world, behind Panama, in terms of numbers of ships and gross tonnage.
The Liberian Registry has said that, in today’s challenging shipping markets, flag states must be proactive in the best interests of shipowners, operators and managers, rather than simply fulfilling their traditional role as certification bodies.
The Liberian Registry informs that Alfonso Castillero, former Director-General of the Panama Registry, has joined their organization as Vice-President
