Updating Bahrain’s Maritime Regulations

Of paramount importance in achieving one of MTT’s strategic objectives - establishing Bahrain as a leading regional maritime centre - is ensuring the provision of a comprehensive legal framework for all facets of the country’s maritime functions.

As such, MTT has prepared a new Bahrain Maritime Code which covers national, regional and international maritime issues, maritime conventions and protocols, the operations of port facilities, and defines the role, responsibility and functions of the MTT. The Code will comprise three primary laws: The Merchant Shipping Act, The Port Act, and The Maritime Commercial Law. Once passed, the new Code will update the Kingdom’s maritime legislation to be on the cutting edge of international maritime law.
