Pursuant to Naval Directive 17JA-04, issued by the First Space Lord on 05 January 2017, and Admiralty Order 1612-02, issued by the First Lord of the Admiralty on 14 December 2016, this joint policy is established in order to catalog and process information specific to said directive:

Directive 1701-05/01.01

Any embarked flag officer qualified under AO1612-02 and ND17JA-04 exercising their seniority in order to designate a vessel as his or her flagship, must notify the Bureau of Ships and the Bureau of Personnel, via email.

Directive 1701-05/01.02

The Bureau of Ships and the Bureau of Personnel shall act as joint custodians of this information for record-keeping purposes only.

Directive 1701-05/01.03

Neither the Bureau of Ships nor the Bureau of Personnel shall act, in any way, as arbiter of qualification. Flag officers in conflict of declaration shall be directed to the First Space Lord for resolution.

Directive 1701-05/01.04

Any flag officer failing to notify the Bureau of Ships and the Bureau of Personnel, may not have their claim formally recognized, and/or may be subject to a possible conflict.

Flagships designated as such shall be posted at the TRMN Wiki (known colloquially as "Mantipedia"), on the subject vessel's page. If no page exists, a stub shall be created to house this information.

Questions or concerns regarding this policy can be directed to the Third and Fifth Space Lords.
