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.
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.
