An important milestone for digital certificates was reached today in Ningbo, China. Mumbai Mærsk passed Port State Control without remarks, only using digital certificates.
This project was intended to prove, that a ship could pass inspections, such as PSC, without the need of physical certificates being presented. During the inspection today, no physical certificates were presented, nor were they requested by the PSC Officers.
This is conclusive proof of our concept.
Following comment was sent by Captain Jørgen after the inspection:
"They applauded the system for being very good and user friendly, and it made the PSC much easier for them to execute"
