San Marino Civil Aviation and Maritime Authority (CAA Civil Aviation Authority – MNA Maritime Navigation Authority) is a member State of IMO since March 2002. Since 1988, San Marino Authority is also a member State of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialised agency of the United Nations created in 1944 to promote the safe and orderly development of international civil aviation throughout the world.
Our primary Maritime legislation consists of Law No. 51 (the Maritime Navigation Law) of 16 September 1946 followed by Law No. 164 (establishment of a Maritime Register for pleasure craft) of 30 November 2004 and the consequent decree No. 119 of 8 August 2005 which establishes the rules of pleasure sailing. Others minor Laws and decrees concerning Maritime Navigation were published by the Government until 2010.
Today, thanks to the new Maritime Navigation reform law No. 120 of 2 August 2019, The Republic of San Marino, through its Maritime Authority, confirms its desire to be a protagonist in the commercial shipping segment as well.
