Parallel/Dual Registration

Charter-In
Foreign registered vessels may obtain parallel or dual registration at IMMARBE as a second Registry under the terms of a bareboat charter party provided that the First Registry grants its consent in writing.  Upon submission of an authenticated copy of the bareboat charter party, the consent from the First Registry and the corresponding fees, navigation and ship station licenses valid for up to two years will be issued. 

Charter-Out
A vessel registered at IMMARBE may obtain a parallel registration in another country's registry based on a barebonat charter party.  For this purpose, the applicant shall submit a formal application giving full details of the bareboat charter party.  If satisfied that all formalities have been complied with, the Registry's Head Office may authorize the vessel’s parallel/dual registration for a period of up to two years.  During the terms of this registration, all relevant annual and other fees will be payable to IMMARBE.  Its title and any mortgages, liens or encumbrances thereon shall be recorded at IMMARBE.

Manning Requirements

Every Belize registered ship must be in possession of a valid certificate of Minimum Safe Manning (MSM) which is issued by IMMARBE in accordance with the applicable IMO Conventions/Regulations and which specifies the minimum number and composition of the crew complement.  The issuance of the MSM Certificate is guided by Resolution A 890(21) of the International Organization (IMO).  Owners may apply for a reduced manning scale should their ships be designed and constructed with unattended machinery space, or are approved with any other machinery automation or remote controls, or trading in restricted areas.  Any request for a reduction or for a special complement must be justified by the applicant for evaluation by Head Office.
