Singapore adopts new rules for the boarding of shore-based personnel

On 24 August, the Singaporean Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) published a circular regulating shore-based personnel boarding the vessel. 

The new circular requires the owner, agent, or master to notify the Port Master in advance of any shore-based personnel expected to come on board during the port stay in Singapore. The circular deals with personnel boarding the vessel in connection with for example repairs, surveys, and inspections. The boarding of bunker and ship supplies personnel does not need to be notified.

The circular requires the owner, agent, or master to notify the Port Master of any such boarding 3 days before the arrival of the vessel.

For details on what information to submit and what precautionary measures to adopt before the boarding of shore-based personnel, please refer to the attached circular.

We thank our correspondent Spica Services Singapore for providing us with the information.
