Choice of flag is fundamental to a ship's commercial performance, and awareness of the numerous factors that determine the most commercially viable option is important for every business involved in shipping. Part of the prestigious Lloyd's Shipping Law Library, this important book provides an authoritative guide to the theory and practice of Ship Registration.

Ship Registration: Law and Practice is the most comprehensive guide available to registering a ship, explaining legal concepts and their practical application, with special consideration given to:

  • Underlying legal concepts behind the registration of ships
  • Flags of convenience - what they are and why their use is on the increase
  • Registering a bareboat charter and how these differ from the norm
  • Factors governing choice of flag
  • Registration requirements and procedures
  • Ship Registration: Law and Practice not only provides you with the theory, it is also the complete guide to registering a ship. It covers the full procedural requirements - including sample forms - for the leading Open Registries, ranging from the largest and most well known, to several of the new countries which have recently emerged on the registry scene. This section also includes separate chapters dealing with the British Register, both in the United Kingdom as well as the four UK Overseas Territories with Category 1 registers.
