Liberian Registry appoints additional US regional compliance managers

The Liberian Registry is continuing on its global expansion and support of vessels, owners and seafarers by expanding its the network of regional compliance offices located in major ports in the US.

The offices, led by experienced regional compliance managers are located in Houston, New Orleans, Seattle, Jacksonville, and Virginia/Mid-Atlantic. Each Compliance Manager provides 24/7 support for vessels entering their respective region.

“Other registries often rely on independent contractors who may have conflicts and other responsibilities, which does not allow for guaranteed availability and quick response times while continuously monitoring and mitigating potential risks,” said Alfonso Castillero, coo of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry.

 “We will be opening additional Global Compliance Centres, including in Australia, Rotterdam and several additional ports in China, in the near future, joining the Registry’s already extensive global network of full-service Regional Offices.  We believe in these investments, which give the Liberian flag clients a direct return on their investments,” he added.  

Liberia’s Fleet PSC Performance staff based at its headquarters in the US, in conjunction with the specially trained exclusive auditors and regional compliance managers have aligned compliance efforts to ensure Liberian-flagged vessels and crews are as prepared, compliant and safe as possible. 

As a result of these efforts and investments, Liberia remains the largest white-listed flag in all port State control MoUs. Liberia is also listed as a QUALSHIP21 flag.
