DATA TRANSPARENCY FOR ADDRESSING FRAUDULENT REGISTRIES, FRAUDULENT SHIP REGISTRATION AND OTHER ILLICIT PRACTICES

On 6 April, Hellenic Shipping News reported on the IMO module on Ship and Company Particulars of GISIS, which is available to the public.  The module allows for the display of information on “false flag” ships. It is also possible to search for all the ships flying a “false flag”.  The database includes in excess of 200,000 active ships and 300,000 companies, and data exchange agreements are in place with numerous flag Administrations.
