Malta Maritime Authority (Transport Malta)
The Malta Maritime Authority, now part of Transport Malta, was set up as a distinct and autonomous corporate body to supervise the organisation of the primary maritime services. It was established by law in 1991 as a Government Agency and so vested with detailed regulatory powers. The set-up of this Authority was to enable ports, merchant shipping and yachting centres to operate within centralised framework.
The Authority operates as a distinct commercially driven organisation, committed to excellence in the provision of services that are both effective and competitive.
TheAuthority's principal role is to create a climate that further enhances Malta's maritime standing and associated business activities. The Authority's aim is to develop and promote Malta as a maritime centre of international repute that is capable of providing a comprehensive package that offers a wide range of maritime services.
