Due to the fact that the attempts from seamen and other people to perform unauthorized registration as non-existing companies have become more frequent, we are compelled to take corresponding measures as it takes much time to process the information, taking into account illegal registrations, that affects providing the service to the existing companies.

  • We remove registration from the site. Registration will be according to the application from the company. The application form will be available for download on our site, it will be possible to fill it in on the computer and send back to us

We believe that every company considering itself respectful and prestigious should have its own web site and corporate mail. For instance, more preferable will be companies with such e-mail and web site data: e-mail:, web site:
  • We don't register companies which don't specify valid license number and company id.
  • Add to Blacklist service is free
