Maritime certificates can be checked online
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.
