N.B.: REGISTRATION WITH THE REVENUE AGENCY - In the event of a public deed received in the State or a sentence pronounced by a State judicial authority, the transcription can be requested prior to the payment of the registration tax to which the title is subject. In this case, together with the double transcription note, the interested party presents a third note on unstamped paper, which is forwarded to the competent Revenue Agency by the conservator. In other cases (private deed, etc.) the transcription can be performed upon presentation of the receipt certifying the payment of the registration tax to which the title is subject. In this case, the person concerned presents the title registered by the Revenue Agency to the office from which the transcription has been requested, as soon as it is perfected.
N.B. 2: in case of prior registration in the Register of Ships under Construction, the STED communicates the registration in the ATCN to the Maritime Authority which holds the Register of Ships under Construction in which the vessel is registered. On the same date, the Maritime Authority canceled the construction from the Ship Under Construction Register.
