NEWLY EMERGING REGISTERS--WHAT IMPACT HAVE THEY HAD SO FAR ON EXISTING OPEN REGISTERS?
The category of "traditional" open registries originally consisted of Panama and then Liberia, but arguably has grown to include Cyprus and Singapore. The search for cost effectiveness, however, in combination with the growing internationalism of business relationships and the search for political and company anonymity, has led to the growth of registers--categorized as "newly emerging registers"--other than the home country national registers. The list of newly emerging registers divides into three groups: the Red Ensign Group; independent "new" registers; and offshore national/international flags. The impact of these groups upon the traditional open registers is examined. Seventeen charts, graphs and tables accompany the text.
