Recognition of Security Companies on board Panama vessels

Procedures for recognition of private maritime security companies on board panama flagged vessels.

The Panama Maritime Authority encourages all Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSC) to comply, with the requirements established in Resolution No.106-13-DGMM, dated March 8th, 2012 to be able to offer their services of Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel on board Panamanian flagged vessels.

Our law firm has already registered and represented several maritime security companies and has experience with these procedures through the Panama Maritime Authorities.

Taking into consideration that Panama has the largest shipping fleet in the world it is a crucial business opportunity for a Maritime Security Company to be authorized to work with Panama Vessels.
