Italian term or phrase: ufficio del Commissario
In this context it is the office where money and valuables may be deposited on a ship. Normally in UK english I think this would be called the Pursers Office, can any one confirm and is the use appropriate?

"Oggetti di valore, preziosi o denaro, purché non abbiano natura ingombrante, potranno essere gratuitamente depositati presso l’ufficio del Commissario. "
