Nautical Inspectors for Barbados Ships’ Registry
MRMC are Nautical Inspectors for the Barbados Ships’ Registry providing annual Flag safety inspections for ships Registered with BMSR.
Barbados has maintained a Ships’ Registry for more than a hundred years, and has been a member of the IMO since 1972. On 1st July 1994 The Shipping Act (1994) and The Shipping (Oil Pollution) Act 1994 were enacted, and Barbados opened its international ships’ Registry in London.
The Barbados Ships’ Registry quickly developed a reputation for quality, and was in fact only the second international ships’ registry in the world to obtain her Lloyd’s Register Quality certificate in 1996. The Registry has maintained that quality standard since, and is today accredited by DNV-GL to ISO 9001, maintaining her standing on the Paris MOU White List.
Our network of Nautical Inspectors has been instrumental in helping to maintain the quality standards of the Barbados fleet; we are proud of the reputation of the Barbados flag and the performance of our inspectors, with Mark Robinson Maritime Consultants being a recent welcome addition to the network.
I had the pleasure of working with Mark Robinson throughout the refit and survey of The Big Blue during 2012 & 2013. Mark was very personable and forthcoming with information that made bringing the boat into survey requirements a lot easier. Always responsive to emails and telephone calls answering numerous questions without bother. Mark had sound knowledge of the yachts history due to his involvement in the build and was forthcoming with information on the vessel I was unaware of. I confidently recommend utilizing MRMC’s services.
