Legislation

The international maritime conventions made at the International Maritime Organization and at the International  Labour Organization are formally extended to Bermuda by the UK once they have been ratified by the UK Government.

The responsibility for enacting Bermuda legislation lies with the Parliament in Bermuda which has competence to enact laws in all areas affecting shipping.  In practice the Department of Maritime Administration  creates Bermuda laws in some areas and , where it is convenient to do so, adopts UK regulations.

The official text of Bermuda laws covering Bermuda ships are available on the Attorney general’s web-site at:

All the laws for shipping are designated as Merchant Shipping (regulations) and can be located in alphabetical order.
