​​​​​​The Athens certificate concerns liability insurance in connection with injury and damage to passengers and their luggage in accidents occurring during commercial passenger voyages. Danish passenger ships engaged in international voyages as well as Danish passenger ships of class A and B engaged in domestic voyages must hold a certificate.

The certificate requirement also applies to foreign ships intending to call at Danish ports, places of loading or unloading or in the Danish continental shelf area, including passenger ships engaged in international trade in class A and B.

Shipping companies with several ships are urged to file a joint application on behalf of the company. Please fill in one application form with information about just one of the company's ships. Under "documents", Blue Cards should be attached for all relevant ships – preferably as a zip file. In the "comment" field, it should be written how many ships the application concerns.
