Maritime Administration of DPR Korea (Chosŏn'gŭl국가해사감독국 소개문), also known as North Korea Maritime Administration Bureau (MAB), is the North Korean maritime authority.[2]

MAB offers a searchable database for North Korean merchant navy ships and seafarers on its website. Unlike many other shipping databases, MAB offers its ship and person data without requiring registration or membership for access.[3]

The director-general of MAB in 2012 was Ko Nung-du. He signed the notification for International Maritime Organization about Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 launch.[4]
