carried out once a year, within a time window of three (3) months prior or after the designated anniversary date of the ship’s registration. Such inspection(s) will be carried out by Flag State Inspectors accredited by the Palau Ship Registry Administrator.
Certain ships may be subject to special/additional as well as more frequent inspections whether
circumstances merit this, in order to attain the aforementioned aims.
