The Liberian International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR) has held a regulatory update seminar in Hamburg, attended by professionals from the regional maritime industry and abroad.

The agenda for the LISCR Hamburg Seminar organised by Merle Stilkenbäumer, Managing Director of the LISCR Hamburg office, covered the Advantages of the Liberian Registry, Port State Control & Dynamic Prevention Programme, Policy Updates, and LNG & Alternative Fuels Services.  

Dallas Smith, Senior Vice President of Commercial and Head of LNG & Alternative Fuels, detailed the Registry’s growth over yesterday, today, and projected growth for tomorrow, and the prospected way forward, and focused on the IMO framework, Efficiency Existing Ship Index and Carbon Intensity Indicator, and Joint Industry Projects (JIPs) to help meet these requirements with LNG and alternative fuels. 

The Liberian Registry has currently issued over 35 Approvals in Principle for JIPs, the most deep-drafted dual fuelled vessels on the water, and over 31% of the market share of ordered newbuild LNG Carriers. 

The growth of the Registry “will not compromise one single notch on the high standards of quality services the Registry renders to its customers, and what its customers may justifiably expect from the Liberian Registry,” said Smith.    

The continuous development of devices and tools to further optimise the already high standards for the benefit of shipowners and ship managers,” explained Roderick Acquie, LISCR Senior Vice President Maritime Operations.

The new Duty Officer Video Conferencing Service, a live global 24/7 video support system with which shipowners and ship managers can chat, video conference, and exchange documents directly and in real-time with the duty officers in charge, was introduced by Roderick Acquie.  The user-friendly-live global 24/7 Duty Video Conference Service is the latest Registry’s digital innovation and already a customer’s favourite application.

The LISCR Hamburg Seminar was the 4th global seminar the Liberian Registry has hosted recently, after Athens, London, and Seoul.
