Maritime Affairs

The Administration is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of all IMO mandatory Conventions and other maritime instruments to which Antigua and Barbuda is a contracting party relating to safety, security, crew welfare and proficiency, and marine environmental protection standards.

Within the Administration, Maritime Affairs generally covers all other functions that are not specifically assigned to Registration and Technical Services under the Flag State obligations of the respective Conventions. Further, Maritime Affairs is directly responsible for ensuring that the Port State, Coastal State, and the Contracting Government’s obligations for Antigua and Barbuda are adequately met.
