SKANReg offers Pandemic help to shipowners

(Posted on 22/04/20)

The St Kitts and Nevis International Ship Registry (SKANReg) is taking a pragmatic approach to helping shipowners during the Coronavirus pandemic with requests for assistance with operational activities being considered due to worldwide restrictions.

It has held discussions with its recognised organisations (ROs) about the possibility of conducting remote surveys and has issued flag state requirements should such ROs propose a remote survey on behalf of the shipowner.

SKANReg is still providing a full service to its owners and managers despite the lockdowns being experienced in many national jurisdictions.

The flag is utilising state-of-the-art registration systems for its operational requirements as well as its recently launched e-certification route for vessel certificates. Discussions are also underway to start issuing e-certificates for Seafarers.

Crew documents can be extended or renewed upon application, the flag said. Further information on how this can be achieved can be read at https://www.skanregistry.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/MC-92-20-Covid-19.pdf.
