The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has published a UK Ship Register (UKSR) update in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Plans are in place to ensure ship owners continue to use UKSR registration services throughout the current pandemic. 

A Marine Information Notice (MIN 614) has been issued, offering guidance to ship owners on how to continue with registration applications, renewing registrations or de-registering a vessel, as well as for those applying for Civil Liabilities Certificates and Continuous Synopsis Records.

Full information on this update can be found at MIN 614 (M+F) here.
