Recognition of Security Companies on board Panama vessels

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 offer their services of Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel onboard 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.

Considering that Panama has the largest shipping fleet globally, it is a crucial business opportunity for a Maritime Security Company to be authorized to work with Panama Vessels.
