The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) ship registry reports that it is ranked sixth on the white list of the Paris MoU, following favourable rankings received recently from the US Coast Guard and Tokyo MoU.

RMI says its 2019 rankings by all three of the major port State control (PSC) authorities reflect the fact that RMI once again outperforms equivalent registries such as Panama and Liberia in quality and detention records, confirming its premier quality status.

Between the years 2017-2019, 4,481 RMI flagged vessels were inspected by Paris MoU members, resulting in only 69 detentions.  The White/Brey/Black (WGB) list is used for calculating the Ship Risk Profile. PSC inspects for compliance with international conventions for safety, security, pollution prevention, and seafarers’ living and working conditions.

“This ranking confirms our status as the flag of choice for the best quality shipowners whose charterers and investors expect their vessels to be fully compliant and not unnecessarily detained or targeted for inspection,” said Bill Gallagher, President of International Registries and its affiliates (IRI), which provides administrative and technical support to the RMI Registry. “We continue to focus relentlessly on providing the global infrastructure of local inspectors and support offices which allow us to provide a first-class service.”
