The country of Liberia adopted new Collateral Registry Regulations towards the end of April 2013 that are now in effect. This reform effort has been supported by the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group. NatLaw has been working with Liberia as a consultant to the IFC on these Registry Regulations and others in Africa.
