Closed CSRs issued by the Malta Flag Administration

Home / Shipping News / Closed CSRs issued by the Malta Flag Administration

The Malta Flag Administration has recently introduced a new requirement whereby CSR (Continuous Synopsis Record) Amendment Forms 2 & 3 need to be submitted before it releases a Closed CSR. Previously, the Flag Administration would release the Closed CSR (and Deletion Certificate) to ships that change flag on presentation of the last issued Maltese certificate of registration and the last renewal certificate, together with payment of all outstanding fees.

This policy has now been changed and the Malta Flag now requires owners to also provide copies of the CSR Amendment Forms to enable release of the Closed CSR.

Should you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact Dr Jotham Scerri-Diacono or any other member of the shipping team at GANADO Advocates.
