The Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI) has issued a notice about the submersible craft requirements.
The Merchant Shipping Act (2021 Revision) requires independent registration and certification of Submersible Craft from the Cayman Islands ships by the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (CISR).
Non-Cayman Islands ships' submersibles may also register and certify with CISR.
This notice outlines CISR's submersible ownership and operation requirements; consult specific regulations for details.
To register, provide:
Display call sign and official number internally; mark official number externally.
Cayman Islands Submersible Craft Safety Certificate is valid for 2 years, needing annual and renewal surveys with full-depth dives.
Follow approved manuals. Annual surveys within +/- 3 months; owner/operator requests attendance.
Refer to REG Yacht Code (Annex K4), Submersible Craft Construction and Operations Regulations, and Merchant Shipping Act.
More guidance: IMO MSC/Circ. 981.
Submersibles on Large Yachts adhere to Flag State, Class Society rules, equipment, Safety Management System, safety certificate, maintenance, and trained crew.
Submersibles need CISR-conducted surveys during construction.
Cover emergency supplies, atmosphere monitors, communication, hull protection, and more.
In-operation surveys ensure Merchant Shipping (Submersible Craft Operations) Regulations are met.
