Toward safe navigation of ships registered in Panama and Liberia as well as the prevention of marine pollution
The Company handles the registration of ships in Panama and Liberia as well as related tasks in the place of shipowners and others.
In 2007, we were awarded the Certificate of Merit of the Panama Maritime Authority (the first in Japan to be awarded this) in recognition of our achievements in handling the registration of ships in Panama over 30 years, as follows:1. explaining to shipowners notified by the Panama Maritime Authority about ship safety and the prevention of maritime pollution,2. our continued support of the safety of ships registered in Panama and the prevention of maritime pollution through advice presented to the Panama Maritime Authority on the basis of requests gathered from shipowners.
Moreover, we started conducting crew living quarter inspections in 2006, thereby contributing to the safe navigation of ships registered in Panama by inspecting the residential facilities of crew members. Further, starting in FY2008, we commenced supervision of the issuance of international shipping guarantees and safety management certificates for ships registered in Liberia. The supervision entails the appointment of one of our employees to each of Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, and Fukuoka, as approved by the Liberian authorities and is implemented in accordance with their instructions.
The Company will continue to conduct supervisions and inspections to contribute to the safe navigation of ships registered in Panama and Liberia as well as the prevention of marine pollution and preserving peace.
