Maritime certificates can be checked online

Maritime certificates can be checked online

20-12-2016 12:00:00


The Danish Maritime Authority is launching a digital solution to verify the validity of seafarers' certificates. With the new solution, anyone can check whether a certificate (STCW) is genuine. Further, the validity and what functions the certificate qualifies are disclosed.

"The new solution makes it quick and easy for seafarers, shipowners and other maritime authorities to ensure admissibility of certificates. The function thus also helps to support the global fight against false certificates in the shipping industry," says Rasmus Høy Thomsen, Head of the Danish Maritime Authority.

The only thing you need is the reference number found on the certificate. It is already possible to use the system at the Danish Maritime Authority's website: Verify STCW certificate.

The system is part of the Danish Maritime Authority's digitization strategy to provide better and easier access to digital information. At the same time the system meets requirements for online verification, which is required by the STCW Convention.
