Cayman Islands Shipping Registry tops White List of Paris MoU

ADVERTISEMENT

The Cayman Islands Shipping Registry, a division of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands, has been listed as No. 1 on the “White List” in the 2016 annual report of the Paris Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control (PSC). It’s the Cayman Islands’ 12th consecutive year on the list.

The Paris MoU on PSC is an administrative agreement between 27 maritime

authorities. It deals mainly with enforcement of safety of life at sea, prevention of pollution by ships, and living and working conditions on board ships. Each maritime administration is rated on the performance of the ships flying its flag during PSC inspections. Those maritime administrations with the lowest detention rates are assigned the highest rankings on the Paris MoU White List.

“Being No. 1 on the White List brings confidence and security to

both the owners of Cayman Islands ships and the seafarers who serve on them,” A. Joel Walton, CEO of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands, said in a statement.
