About the Liberian Registry


The Liberian Registry is the world’s largest quality registry, renowned for excellence, efficiency, safety and innovative service.

The Liberian Registry is comprised of 4,170+ vessels aggregating more than 150 million gross tons, representing 12 percent of the world’s ocean going fleet. Liberia has earned international respect for its dedication to flagging the world’s safest and most secure vessels. The Liberian Registry is recognized at the top of every industry “white-list” including the International Maritime Organization and the major Port State Control authorities such as the U.S. Coast Guard as well as the Paris and Tokyo MOU regimes.

The Liberian Registry is administered by the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR, LLC), a private U.S. owned and globally operated company. LISCR is internationally recognized for its professionalism and commitment to reduce redundant workflow procedures in order to increase efficiency. The Registry is managed by industry professionals who understand the business of shipping and corporate structures. Its proficient administration is one of the most effective and tax efficient ship and corporate registries in the world.

The Registry has experienced exponential growth in fleet size and registered tonnage throughout its long history. In recent years, the Liberian Registry has grown by approximately 90 million gross tons, twice the growth rate claimed by its nearest competitor over the same period.

The Liberian Registry has built a global infrastructure of support and provides 24-hour service to its shipowners and managers anytime and anywhere in the world.
