Wreck removal certificate

​​​​​​The wreck removal certificate concerns liability insurance in connection with the identification, marking and removal of wrecks. Danish ships with a gross tonnage of or above 300 must have a certificate.

The certificate requirement also applies to foreign ships with a gross tonnage of or above 300 that want to call at or depart from a Danish port or an offshore installation in Danish waters.

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.
