Hong Kong Shipping Register Reaches 100 Million Tons

The Hong Kong Shipping Register passed the 100 million gross tonnage mark at the end of September with a total of 2,449 ships registered.

The register is the fourth largest in the world.

The Hong Kong Marine Department said that as a result of the register’s quality control system, the Port State Control detention rate of Hong Kong-registered ships remains at a low level.

Ships registered in Hong Kong remain among the top performers in the white list issued by the Tokyo Memorandum of Understanding of Port State Control, and are classified as low-risk ships in the Paris MoU, the department said.

Hong Kong also continues to hold the Qualship 21 status of the U.S. Coast Guard.

The department added it will continue to improve co-ordination with China’s mainland authorities to better protect Hong Kong-registered ships when they are in international waters and in foreign ports.
