Palau gets onto the White List

Palau International Ship Registry (PISR) has been recognized by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) as being in full compliance with the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).

At IMO headquarters in London on Monday June 10th Secretary-General Kitack Lin’s proposal was approved by the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) giving the PISR white list status under the STCW Convention 1978.

Panos Kirnidis, CEO of PISR, said that “we have been working with the IMO on a number of issues and this white list approval is yet another example of how far we have come as a registry in this most competitive of maritime sectors. Everything we have accomplished over the past few years has been another step forward in refining our services and credibility as a responsible, technologically advanced and diligent ship registry.
