Ref No: 030521 (3)
This circular is in addition to the one we sent on 29 April 2021 [Ref No.: 290421 (1)] concerning vessels arriving or transiting through India.
This circular brings to the attention of the Singapore Economic Development Board’s (EDB), requirements for all vessels arriving shipyards for repair or waterfront facilities including Process Terminals e.g. refineries, chemical plants and tank storage terminals etc., in the Port of Singapore.
Any shipyard which has ships arriving from or transiting through Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, in the past 21 days, for ship repair calls, must write to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval before accepting the ship. If the ship concerned is not calling at the shipyard for repairs, all operations must be contactless. The shipyard is to submit their contactless operations procedures under the email header “For EDB CCO’s approval: Ship repair calls or Shipyard’s Contactless Operations for ships arriving from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka”.
Drawing reference to EDB’s advisory sent out on 28 Apr 2021, ships arriving from or transiting through Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka within past 21 days and calling at process terminal must conduct contactless operations. Process terminal owners need not submit their terminal contactless operations procedures if they have submitted their procedures for any ship arriving from or transit through India in the past 21 days and EDB has already approved. Terminals are reminded to extend conduct contactless operations to all ships calling at process terminals, regardless their last port of call. Please seek EDB CCO’s approval on such operations by writing to email@example.com, with email header “Terminal Contactless operations Procedures at process terminal for ships arriving from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka”.
The above advisory takes effective from 1 May 2021, 2359H.
