The shipping industry seems to rapidly mobilizing to face the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19 pandemic. In this regard, the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR) will use RINA’s remote technology for inspections of Liberian flagged vessels and as announced, Shipowner d’Amico will take advantage of this facility in a pilot case on his fleet. It is anticipated that the decision of LISCR could shortly be followed by other Flag Administrations.
The USCG signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the European Commission on February 28, 2020, for oversight of mutually recognized organizations for survey and certification of commercial vessels.
