SEA EXPLOITATION LAW

The Mongolia Sea Exploitation Law came into force on 28 May 1999.

The law includes provisions for the authority to promulgate and administer regulations pertaining to the operations of a ship registry and the compliance of all IMO Convention's requirements, which Mongolia is a party to.

Such as the issuing of surveyor's licenses, COE, DCE certificates, implementing of penalties, documentation, and identification of vessels, radio requirements, vessel safety, rules for navigation, duties of master and other issues relating to ships flying the Mongolian flag.

SHIPS REGISTRATION

This Regulation has been approved by the Mongolian's Parliament on 8 Jan 2003 and is issued by the Mongolia Ship Registry.

It covers records to be kept by the Mongolia Ship Registry (such as COE, DCE, Trading Certificates, merchant marine personnel), and other issues such as the safety of ships, penalties, documentation and identification of vessels, general radio requirements, marine safety inspection, marine casualties, reporting, manning requirements, shipping registration requirements and mortgage procedures and conditions reinforcing the requirements of Mongolia statutory instruments.
Until 1990, the Mongolian economic developments were directed by a series of Soviet-style central plans. In the late 80s and early 90s, the Mongolian people changed the path of development with the first multi-party election in 1990. In 1992, the new democratic constitution was enacted.d.
MERCHANT SHIPPING (Certification and Manning) RULES

The Merchant Shipping (Certification & Manning) Rules consist of 16 Parts. The Rules have been developed pursuant to Section 9 of the Mongolia Merchant Shipping (Ship Registration) Regulations, mainly detailing Mongolia compliance with STCW95 Convention.

The Rules cover manning requirements, fraud, forgery and misrepresentation in certifications and documentation, responsibilities of ship owners, medical fitness requirements, investigations, minimum training requirements in order to serve on Mongolian ships, duties in watch keeping and miscellaneous issues that deal with ship operations.
