In order to have a ship admitted to the Register of Shipping, you must forward a number of documents. The documents are required to have a certain format, which you should know when you intend to register your ship. You can always ask us if in doubt. The documents are the following:
- Tonnage certificate
- Form S 1 or S 3
- Relevant form for company application for registration, for example R1
- Document of title
- Deletion certificate or certificate of non-registration
- Documentation of previous owners
