The Association would like to inform its Members of the current situation with regards to anchoring in and around the area of Singapore. 

The area around Singapore has traditionally been one of the busiest in the shipping world due to large numbers of vessels transiting the straits or calling at the port. Recent months have seen a large number of vessels anchored off the port, many of them outside port limits to the east and west of the island. Anchoring in non designated areas can be extremely dangerous and cause considerable risks to traffic moving around in this busy seaway. The area between the outer port limits and the Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS) is quite small and as the area has filled with ships, some have drifted or anchored too near or inside the TSS. #
