Given the size of its fleet and continued growth, the Registry has built an extensive global infrastructure of support made up of 29 regional offices and over 450 inspectors and auditors providing 24-hour service anytime and anywhere in the world.As an industry leader in technological innovation, Liberia has launched numerous programs in recent years embracing digitalization and interactive platforms. These programs further streamline the entire registration process, making life easier for owners and proving that all flags are not alike.
