Danish ships get digital certificates

Danish ships get digital certificates

As one of the first countries in the world, Denmark ends a 100 year old tradition to certify ships using old-fashioned paper certificates on June 24. From now on, the certifications will be digital.

"It is important that the Danish economy is at the forefront of the digital transition. This also applies to the Blue Denmark. Therefore, I am proud that Denmark as one of the very first countries will switch to a digital certification solution that can facilitate the administrative work, thus saving time and money in the maritime sector," says Minister of business and growth Troels Lund Poulsen.

So far, the certification has happened by paper certificates being printed, stamped and signed and then being sent around the world by mail to the retention on board ships.

Digital certification - called electronic certification on the international stage - will do away with the cumbersome processes, facilitate the administration and pave the way for further maritime digitization.

"The Danish Maritime Authority has made great efforts that the IMO is accepting of electronic certificates. It is clearly a step forward that will help to reduce administrative burdens and costs for Danish companies and ships. Denmark is in a leading position here, and we hope that other flag States and classification societies will follow Denmark's initiative," says Managing Director of the Danish Shipowners' Association Anne H. Steffensen.

The ships will continuously replace their old paper certificates as the certificates expire. At the same time companies will have an online access to their own certificates, which also helps to reduce the amount of unnecessary administration.
