Nexus works closely with various US and international governing bodies and continues to do so to ensure transparent operations in the increasingly difficult task of protecting mariners. Nexus has been licensed and cleared for operations in South Africa, Djibouti, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Egypt, Malta, and many other locations.
Nexus has always been and continues to be highly cognizant and respectful all international laws and the authority of port-state controls, which from time to time are highly dynamic (for example, with rapid governmental control changes). For more information, please visit ncga.us.
