SINGAPORE - Exemption and Dispensation Application Form

Please note following email received from Marine and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA): 


As you are aware, the following information is on the MPA website; 
For Singapore-registered ships and their companies, MPA as the flag Administration has the exclusive right to extend surveys or certificates, or issue exemptions or dispensations. 
However, applications for survey or certificate extensions, exemptions or dispensations should be done through the recognised organisation (RO) that issued the certificate. 
We advise owners and companies to apply before the survey is due or certificate expires. Submit the application form early in order for the MPA to process your application within 3 working days. 

We have updated the application form as attached and the same will be replaced on the MPA website soon. In order to help streamline the application and reduce the time spent on clarifying and requesting for information, etc., the revised application form also has a section for RO to provide your evaluation and recommendation. This form can be supplemented with additional relevant documents and information, of course. 


Singapore Registered Ships operators are encouraged to apply for such extensions, exemptions or dispensations via RO’s, so that a complete and comprehensive application can be submitted to MPA.
