St Kitts and Nevis Registry Introduces E-Certification
(Posted on 31/01/20)
The St Kitts and Nevis International Ship Registry (SKANReg) has created efficiencies in the way it operates by launching a range of electronic certificates it says will not only speed up the registration process but help in the industry’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.
The E-Certification process will go live on January 31st. It follows the lodging of a notification of the initiative with the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
Certificates that will be digitised after January 31st include:
• Provisional Certificate of Registry
• Provisional Ship Station Licence
• Permanent Certificate of Registry
• Ship Radio Station Licence
• Minimum Safe Manning Certificate
• Continuous Synopsis Records
• Bunker CLCs
• Oil CLCs
• Wreck Certificates
• Letter of Consent to Bareboat Charter Out
• Transcript of Registry
• Declaration of Maritime Labour Convention Part 1
• Exemption Certificate
• Deletion Certificate
Those Electronic Certificates generated will contain a Quick Response (QR) Code as well as a unique Controlled Certificate Number while internationally accepted PDF encryption will be implemented to protect the documentation.
Liam Ryan, spokesperson for The St Kitts and Nevis International Ship Registry, said the move to digitise its certification process was an important step in helping to speed up the way the Registry responds to the needs of its shipowners and managers.
“It is well known that shipping is changing as it embraces the digital age and this initiative by St Kitts and Nevis ensures we can react with the precision and efficiency that the market is demanding. We have lodged official notification with the IMO and have put in place stringent security processes to ensure the documentation is safe,” he said.
