UK Ship Register Receives US Coast Guard Qualship 21 Award

UK Ship Register Receives US Coast Guard Qualship 21 Award

The UK Ship Register has been recognised by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) for their excellent Port State Control record, listing them as one of the few shipping flag administrations to retain the prestigious Qualship 21 for 2013.

This award reduces the likelihood that UK ships will be targeted for inspection by US Port State Control inspectors.

 Head of the UK Ship Register Debasis Mazumdar said:

 “Thanks to the high standards applied by the MCA’s Marine Surveyors, ships registered in the UK will less likely be targeted for surprise inspection by US Port State Control inspectors. This will give continued support and a commercial advantage to the ships registered to us.

 “Qualship 21 is a demanding quality standard for shipping set by the United States Coastguard. This is a great achievement for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and shows the high quality of ships registered to us.”
