About FAS

FAS was launched in 1992 and has proven to be an excellent aternative to other ships registers.
Around 90 ships are currently registered in FAS and the register continues to grow.

FAS offers financial advantages to ship owners and a fast, flexible and uncomplicated service from the administration.
A short distance between the administration and legislators is a natural consequence of operating in a small country, and we consider this advantageous compared to bigger registries.

The Faroese flag is an internationally recognised flag.

The Faroe Islands is an Associate Member of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The relevant IMO / ILO conventions are in force in the Faroe Islands.

Merger of fas and fma

1st of June 2010 the Faroese National & International Ship Register was merged with the Faroese Maritime Authority (FMA).

The two administrations have always worked closely together, so this was a logical step. It is practical for the administration as well as for the shipowners that these maritime activities are now under joint management. We can hereby ensure a consistent policy and commit ourselves, also in the future, to give shipowners a smooth and effective service on all levels, as well as hold on to our commitment to international maritime obligations.
