Government takes over IBC and Ship Registry

Please be advised that effective June 11th, 2013, the Government of Belize has taken over the Management of the IBC and Ship Registry.  The new Deputy Registrar is Mr. Marion Palacio. Effective that date, all checks are to be written to the Government of Belize and all certificates being issued must be signed by either Mr. Gian Gandhi or Mr. Marion Palacio in order for them to be valid.

We note that it was announced that the GOB’s intention is to strenghten and streamline the two registries, while at the same time, complying with the internationally acceptable prudential standards and safeguards.  It was also said that the registries will continue to provide quality service under the new management to all.
