The St Kitts and Nevis International Ship Registry (SKANReg) has put in place a series of measures designed to help ship owners and managers as they embark on the road to normalising their operations post-Covid-19

The newly implemented support measures are directed at new clients as well as existing clients and cover areas such as assistance with taxation, seafarer documentation and registration matters.

SKANReg has placed Covid-19 at the top of its agenda and already introduced a number of measures to help owners and managers. The flag recently announced that it has held discussions with its recognised organisations (ROs) about the possibility of conducting remote surveys because of Covid-19, and has issued flag state requirements should such ROs propose a remote survey on behalf of the shipowner.

SKANReg is providing a full service to its owners and managers despite the lockdowns being experienced in many national jurisdictions. The flag is utilising up-to-date registration systems for its operational requirements as well as its recently launched e-certification route for vessel certificates. Discussions are underway to start issuing e-certificates for Seafarers. Crew documents can be extended or renewed upon application, the flag said.
