Close modal     The Flag of the Republic of Cameroon

     Ship registration in Cameroon is governed by The CEMAC Merchant Shipping Community Code of 3rd august 2001 as amended on 22nd August 2012. The registration process entails the provision of certain requirements, in view of accomplishing a successful procedure and obtaining a registration number in Cameroon.

     Ship registration in Cameroon in accordance with the CEMAC Code constitutes the aspects of Individualization/Personality of a vessel and the title of nationality given to a vessel. The elements which constitute the Individualization/personality of a ship are as follows:

●   The name of the ship

●   The port of registry

●   Nationality

●   Tonnage

●   Registration number

●   In default, the identification number of the International Maritime Organization

     However, the elements that constitute the personality of a ship are quite different from the regime of ship registration in Cameroon.

     The ship registration process in Cameroon entails submitting to the competent maritime authority certain documents, such as: Certificate of Nationality of the vessel, Tonnage certificate, Matriculation certificate etc.

     When you submit these documents to the competent attorney, the maritime authority will engage due diligence on the documents. The maritime authority will designate an expert to survey the vessel if satisfied with the documents presented. The expert report will determine if the registration will be successful or not.

Flag Registration

     Every merchant ship needs to be registered to a state of its choice. The ship is then bound to carry the flag of that state and also follow the rules and regulations enforced by the same. The ship’s flag is an important factor when the court makes the decision on the judging.

     The ship will follow the regulation of the flag state nation’s maritime law in the open sea and it will also avail different protections and preferential treatments as tax, certification, and security etc. as per the flag state benefits.

     Ship registration plays an important role in many aspects such as vessel purchases, newbuilding deliveries, financing, vessel leasing, and different priorities of owners and mortgagees.

Why Flag State?

     The term Flag State came to existence because of the usage of flags as the symbol of the nationality or tribe the ships belong to from the early days. The flag has come to be an officially sanctioned and very powerful symbol of the State and is the visible evidence of the nationality conferred by the State upon ships registered under its national law. The ship’s flag displays the nationality of the ship, under whose laws the ship is playing in the international waters.
