Cayman Maritime Flag

(CNS Business): A division of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands is making waves in a recently published shipping performance report. In the Tokyo Port State Control 2014 Annual Report, the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry is listed as one of the six best performing Maritime Administrations. In the report each maritime administration is rated on the performance of their ships flying its flag during Port State Control inspections.  In addition, the analysis includes Port State Control statistics and a detailed analysis on the results of inspections carried out by member authorities during the year. Those maritime administrations with the highest inspection-to-detention ratios are assigned the highest, or ‘White List’ category. Another contender in our region, who joined Cayman in the “White List” category, was Bermuda.

The main objective of the Tokyo MOU is to establish an effective Port State Control regime in the Asia-Pacific region through securing the compliance of ships with international regulations, to eliminate substandard shipping, to promote safety of life at sea, to protect the marine environment from pollution and to safeguard seafarers by setting standards for their working and living conditions on ships.

Greg Evans, Executive Director of Global Safety and Compliance, stated, “This prestigious position within the Tokyo MOU demonstrates the commitment of the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry’s staff, management and the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands board members to operate a world class and quality maritime administration. Our success has been a result of years of work in partnership with our ship owners and managers to drive the highest possible quality standards.”

The Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific Region is published under the auspices of the Port State Control Committee of the Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific Region (Tokyo MOU).
