Reminder re ship identification number

The Singapore Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) has issued Marine Circular 21 of 2003 reminding shipowners to have identification numbers permanently marked on their ships as soon as possible. The recent change to the SOLAS Convention requires such numbers on passenger ships of 100 GT and upwards and all cargo ships of 300 GT and upwards not later than the first scheduled dry-docking after 1 July 2004.
