Use these forms to apply to the Registry of Shipping and Seamen (RSS) for a new continuous synopsis record (CSR) or to make amendments to your CSR.
The CSR is a form of log book that stays with the ship for its whole life, and records all changes of owner, flag, name, class, ISM etc.
The ship must keep its copy of the whole CSR onboard even when it:
transfers to another flag state
is sold to another owner
is taken over by another bareboat charter
another company assumes the responsibility of the ship operation
A CSR must be maintained for:
passenger ships on international voyages
cargo ships of 500GT and above on international voyages
class A passenger ships operating domestic services within UK waters
The RSS issues CSRs for UK registered ships in the English language.
