MPA: Reminder on prohibited anchoring in western Singapore port limits

30 Dec 2018

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Thursday (27 December) issued a reminder to ship masters, owners and agents of vessels operating in Singapore port waters that anchoring in all areas outside the designated anchorages is strictly prohibited.

The reminder is in relation to the earlier published Port Marine Circular (PMC) No. 9 of 2018 where port limits were revised effective 6 December 2018.

“With effect from 26 Dec 2018, stiffer penalties will apply, pursuant to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (Port) Regulations, to offenders whose vessels are anchored outside the designated anchorages,” stated the reminder.

“Offenders may, upon conviction, be liable for fines of up to $20,000 and $2,000 for every day or part of a day that the offence continues after conviction.”

Readers with any enquiry are advised to contact MPA at pocc@mpa.gov.sg.
