The Marine Accident Investigation Branch has reached an agreement with the Red Ensign Group (REG) and as of this month will now carry out investigations into Very Serious Marine Casualties for the Red Ensign Group Category 1 registries of Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar and the Isle of Man.

This is an important development for the MAIB that will not only benefit the wider REG, but will also ensure that safety investigations remain independent of marine regulation. Additional resources have been brought into the Branch to take on this important work, including the recruitment of two new inspectors.

The full MOU can be read here.
