THE Jamaica Ship Registry says it is improving its service to owners by strengthening the role of its regional offices to give more power to the grass roots.
The Registry says in a statement: “Jamaica’s offices in Germany and Singapore are now taking full responsibility for assisting owners with all aspects of the registration process. Direct links to the central computer at the JSR’s headquarters in Kingston, Jamaica, mean that all transactions can be dealt with from the regional offices – including vessel applications and registrations, seafarer endorsements, cadet placement and crewing programmes, reports and invoicing.
Jamaica Ship Registry Registrar General Eric Deans says: “This decentralized approach means that ourselves-supporting regional offices will be able to interact locally with clients in their own time zones and language. From now on our clients will never be too far from a JSR representative willing and able to offer a timely service. By offering the full range of ship registration and technical services at strategically located, full-service regional offices we are able to better support both our clients and our global network of deputy registrars.”
