Marine Notice 04 provides guidance on what to report to the Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA).
The BMA’s Investigation Department investigates marine casualties with the overarching objective to prevent further occurrence. The Department’s investigations do not establish liability or apportion blame; completion of a report using this portal does not constitute an admission of liability of any kind.
The BMA reporting portal has been designed with the limitations of ships’ internet connections in mind. If connection to the internet is lost you can continue to fill in the form and submit - just keep the browser open and the information will transmit once connection is restored.
