Further to an Official Notification , Circular No. 001/2015, addressed to Ship owners, Managers, Deputy Registrars, Agents, PSA. RAAs, Marine Radio Systems Ltd., is no longer authorized to assign MMSI numbers to Belize registered vessels. All such requests shall be processed directly with the International Merchant Marine Registry of Belize (IMMARBE) through its Registration Department.
This has become necessary in an effort to simplify the process without outsourcing the service. In this way, the MMSI will be assigned automatically upon registration of a vessel together with the assignment of its official registration number and call letters. Costs involved will be invoiced as part of the overall costs of the registration fees thereby avoiding additional bank charges.
All vessels not exempted from carrying radio electronic equipment for identification are required to obtain an MMSI number including fishing, private yachts and small crafts such as tugs. Unmanned vessels or vessels operating in inland waterways need not apply.
