Aviareto has been reappointed as Registry for the International Registry

In June 2014 the Council of ICAO decided to reappoint Aviareto as the Registrar for the International Registry for a third term from 2016 to 2021.

The folks at Aviareto have announced that in June they reached a significant milestone half a million registrations since the IR went live in 2006 – in an average month they process around 7000 registrations.

A new contracting state:  Kingdom of Bhutan has acceded to the Convention and Protocol (effective on November 1, 2014).

There are a few new features to the IR website:

The IR will no longer ask for Registration Numbers – Nationality and Registration Marks field will be removed from the registration details screen on the International Registry Website.

Change from “Contract of Sale” to “Sale” – Throughout the IR website, the label “Contract of Sale” will be replaced with “Sale”, and the label “Prospective Contract of Sale” will be replaced with “Prospective Sale”.
