Bahamas Online Registration Information System (BORIS)

Industry leading online registration system

In order to facilitate the timely processing of documents and to enhance our customer service delivery, The BMA has developed an industry leading on-line registration information system (BORIS) for registered owners, ISM managers and authorised manning agents of Bahamas registered vessels.

Why register for online services?

  • Single entry of vessel details
  • Active monitoring and tracking of applications
  • Environmentally friendly solution through the electronic submission of documents and applications
  • Download system generated documents
  • Increased accuracy and greater reliability of data
  • Online vessel inspections
  • Securely submit on-line seafarer applications
  • Increased levels of control for clients
  • Entire registration process, including form completion, can take place on-line
  • Reserve a vessel name
  • Verify invoice payments and status (or validity) of Bahamas certificates

A major benefit to users is that the enhanced system avoids the need to repeatedly enter ship data when completing registration forms as vessel details only need to be entered once.  This will represent business efficiency combined with significant time and cost savings during the registration process.
