The CLC certificate concerns liability insurance in connection with damage caused by oil pollution when carrying oil. Danish ships carrying more than 2,000 tonnes of mineral oil containing carbon hybrids must hold a certificate.
The certificate requirement also applies to foreign ships that intend to call at Danish ports, Danish places of loading or unloading, in the Danish continental shelf area or carrying more than 2,000 tonnes of oil in bulk as cargo.
The Danish Maritime Authority issues the certificate on the basis of an application from the shipping company. The application must, inter alia, inform about the ship's insurance.
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.
