The Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI), parent organization of the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (CISR), has received news that the latter has maintained its prestigious “White List” status on the Paris Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Port State Control.

According to the MACI's CEO, Mr A. Joel Walton:

“Paris is surely one of the most significant MOUs internationally, and being on its “White List” brings well-earned global recognition to the high standing of the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry”.

The Paris MOU consists of 27 participating maritime Administrations and covers the waters of the European coastal States and the North Atlantic basin from North America to Europe. Its stated mission is the elimination of the operation of sub-standard ships through a harmonized system of Port State Control.

Paris MOU Participating Maritime Authorities include: Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

The MACI has also recently attained the highly prestigious “White List” status on the Tokyo MOU, in recognition of the quality of the fleet on its Register, some 2,000+ vessels, ranging from yachts through bulk carriers and tankers.

Established in 1903, when George Town was first recognized as a port of Registry by the United Kingdom, the CISR today continues to carry on Cayman’s rich seafaring tradition around the globe.
