Electronic Ship Information (ESI)

A shipowner and the master of a sea-going ship shall submit the ship’s information to the Director of Marine online either via Marinet or file format. This information is to be submitted when the ship is registered with the Singapore Registry of Ships.

Validity of the Electronic Ship’s Information (ESI)

There is no validity period for the report submitted in the ESI. It is only required to be re-submitted if there is:

  • a change in the ship’s trading areas;
  • a change of the shipowners or managers, together with a change of the entire existing crew on board

The ESI is to be closed upon a suspension of the ship’s registry or if the ship leaves the Singapore Registry.

The ESI in the file format and user manual can be downloaded from MPA website.
