New reporting requirements for foreign flag vessels entering China

Further to our recent update on China’s Maritime Traffic Safety Law (MTSL), the Maritime Safety Administration (MSA) has issued a new circular requiring foreign flag vessels to make mandatory reporting prior entering the territorial waters of China.

Ships are also required to make follow-up reports after they enter the territorial waters, every two hours if the ship does not have an operational Automatic Identification System (AIS)

More information is available in the below circular issued by Oasis P&I.

The club would like to thank Oasis P&I for this guidance.
