The Merchant Shipping Directorate has issued a notice in order to encourage shipping Recognised Organisations (ROs), acting under the authority of the Government of Malta, to develop capabilities in order to align with the maritime industry’s transformation towards smarter ships and intelligent ports, so as to facilitate greater administrative and operational efficiencies.

Transport Malta objective is to bring about greater efficiency for the multiple stakeholders. In this regard, Recognised Organistations issuing statutory certificates to ships flying the Malta Flag are being authorised and encouraged to develop capabilities to issue electronic versions of the statutory certificates to replace the traditional paper statutory certificates.
