New reporting requirements for foreign flag vessels entering China

English

Further to our recent update on China’s Maritime Traffic Safety Law (MTSL), the Maritime Safety Administration (MSA) has issued a new circular requiring foreign flag vessels to make mandatory reporting prior entering the territorial waters of China.

Ships are also required to make follow-up reports after they enter the territorial waters, every two hours if the ship does not have an operational Automatic Identification System (AIS)
