Registering new owner for MMSI number

Hi guys.....
I have bought my first boat, can anyone tell me who I inform to change the details on the ITU Database ?
I cant see anything on the ITU website, apart from 'contact the relevant authority - with a link that doesnt work.
I am based in the UK if that helps a y,
Cheers

With respect that's not the OPs problem. He merely wants to update the ITU database with the correct owner details. A new MMSI is not issued simply because the owner changes.

If he needs to change the SSR. That's a totally different issue

Ofcom may well be unique in agencies of that type by being friendly, helpful and efficient. Give them a call.
