PANAMA MARITIME AUTHORITY – PRE-ARRIVAL CHECKLIST FOR US PORTS

Published: July 9, 2020

 The Panama Maritime Authority has issued a Merchant Marine Circular MMC-381, which provides for additional assessment requirements to encourage quality operations and decrease potential PSC detentions of Panama Flagged vessels calling into the USA.

The use of this pre-arrival checklist, which must be completed 96 hours prior to arrival in any US port, is compulsory for all Panamanian vessels and should be signed by the vessel’s Master and/or company’s Designated Persons Ashore (DPA).

Further details can be found at Witt O’Brien’s (Crisis and Emergency Management) Regulatory Update.
