WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
The Barbados Ships’ Registry offers the discerning ship operator a first-class personal service in all aspects of ship registration.
White-listed in Paris MOU, accredited to ISO9001, the Barbados Ships’ Registry provides a quality-driven service second to none.
We provide a 24/7 emergency service 365 days a year; urgent dispensation and exemptions may be dealt with outside of normal office hours, and the Principal Registrar may be contacted directly for help, advice and guidance. The whole team at BMSR is dedicated, friendly and helpful.
A network of Nautical Inspectors is available to carry out annual ship safety inspections and to assist ship operators whenever required. The list of Inspectors may be accessed here: Nautical Inspectors.
Barbados has been a member of IMO since 1971, and has ratified many of the international Conventions that have been instrumental in shaping the world’s shipping legislation.
We provide regular bulletins to keep our clients and associates abreast of new developments, and work closely with all our ship owners and managers to help maintain a quality fleet.
Classification Societies that are members of IACS (International Association of Classification Societies) have been appointed to survey and issue statutory certificates on our behalf.
