The Liberian Registry has further strengthened its industry-leading role for technological innovation by relaunching its website in an ultra-user-friendly format.

Among other things, owners and managers of the 4,150-plus vessels in the Liberian-flag fleet will have direct access to an online application system for ship liability certificates and an extensive and user-friendly online library featuring official guidance and vessel registration forms.

Innovative features of the mobile-friendly website include a new Annual Fee Calculator and a China Port Tonnage Dues Savings Calculator. The latter affords owners and managers access to details of the preferential tonnage tax dues made uniquely available to Liberian-flag ships under an Agreement on Maritime Transport between the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Liberia. There is also a new, enhanced Vessel Registration Forms and Procedures facility, providing a user-friendly interface for clients searching for specific vessel registration documentation.

The new website includes a range of user-friendly and innovative features, including an Inspector/Auditor Search Tool, a Vessel Certificate Verification Tool, an MLC Certificate Search Tool, and a Seafarers Look-up Tool. It also features a portal to an online application system for Ship Liability Certificates via the Liberian Registry’s state-of-the-art web-based interface, WayPoint. Clients will also be able to apply here for international convention certificates.
