Mercantile Marine Act, 1955

Temporary passes in lieu of certificates of registry.

42.—Where it appears to the Revenue Commissioners that by reason of special circumstances it would be desirable that permission should be given to a ship which is wholly owned by one or more qualified persons to pass without being previously registered—

(a) from any port in the State to another port in the State, or

(b) from any port in the State to a port outside the State when the voyage is not primarily for trading purposes,

the Revenue Commissioners may grant a pass accordingly, and that pass shall, for the time and within the limits therein mentioned, have the same effect as a certificate of registry.
