Overview

The Isle of Man Ship Registry is proposing to make changes to the legislation which prescribes requirements for the making and keeping of records. The main proposals are:

  • Seafarer’s Discharge Book to be replaced by a new document called a Record of Sea Service
  • Ships to stop sending Official Log Books, List of Crew and GMDSS Log Books back to the Isle of Man Ship Registry
  • Ships to keep Official Log Books, List of Crew and GMDSS Log Books on board for a period of 3 years from the date of closure
