Electronic statutory and class certificates

             
             
      
     
      
    

Ship owners and managers, port state authorities and flag states can now select e-certificates for their class and statutory certificates. These are issued in lieu of paper certificates when agreed with both the flag administration and the ship manager.

E-certificates will significantly simplify the lives of captains and ship personnel, ship owners, flag authorities, and port staff. Their authenticity and validity can be easily verified using Bureau Veritas’ secure and streamlined system.

How do e-certificates work?

  
Bureau Veritas’ e-certificate displays the usual content and layout of class and statutory documents. In addition, it includes an electronic signature as well as a link to a verification web portal. Each time a Bureau Veritas surveyor goes aboard a vessel a new version of the e-certificate is issued to reflect either the endorsement or the renewal of the required certification.

E-certificates are delivered by email and are also available via the  My Veristar mobile app and the  Veristar Info website.

Certificate authenticity and validity can be verified via a secure online portal using a   QR codeURL or  search via the certificate’s unique identification number

Bureau Veritas’ e-certificates are developed in compliance with  IMO guidelines FAL 5/Circ.39/Rev 2 , which invites flag state administrations to ensure adequate national legislation is in place for the use and acceptance of electronic certificates.
