A recent news circular published in the Panama Ship Registry deals with Merchant Marine Circular MMC – 307.

This Marine Circular supersedes

 The MMC-272 – List of Exclusive

The MMC-309 – Procedures for Transfer of Statutory and Class


 The purpose of this Circular is to inform about the Code for Recognized Organizations (RO Code), through which all applicable requirements for recognized organizations are gathered in a single IMO mandatory instrument.

The Code is divided into 3 parts, Part 1 and Part 2 mandatory, while Part 3 is recommendatory, provides a consolidated instrument containing criteria against which ROs are assessed and authorized/recognized, and gives guidance for subsequent monitoring of ROs by flag

The RO Code provides flag Administrations with a standard that will assist in achieving a harmonized and consistent global implementation of requirements established by IMO instruments for the assessment and authorization of recognized organizations.
