Closure of Registry

Voluntary closure of registry followed by the issue of a Deletion Certificate is also a straightforward operation, provided, inter alia, there is the consent of the mortgages and all liabilities and obligations of the ship towards the State of Malta have been fulfilled. Cancellation of registry by the Administration for non-compliance with the provisions of the law may also be effected after adequate time has been given to the owners to regularize matters and for the financiers to take the necessary action to protect their interests.
