The Danish Maritime Authority launched a pilot project on digital certificates for seafarers, according to a notice released on May 29.

The project is being undertaken aboard the 2018-built containership Mumbai Maersk, that is scheduled to sail from Denmark’s Port of Aarhus for destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia with crew certificates that are entirely digital instead of traditional paper certificates.

“This is simpler, faster and safer for seafarers, shipping companies and authorities,” Danish Maritime Authority said.

During the voyage, the 190,326 dwt ship will call ports in Germany, Morocco, Singapore, China and South Korea, where it will collect data and knowledge about the use of digital certificates for seafarers. In particular in connection with Port State Control.

“The pilot project aims to explore the advantages of digital certificates and hopefully pave the way for global acceptance and utilization,” the authority concluded.
