Danish Maritime Authority digitalises seafarers' seagoing service

Del

Now seafarers can manage and report their seagoing service digitally.

Digitalising seagoing service is the first step taken to make it easier for seafarers to apply for certificates, keep track of their seagoing service and get digital access to their data.

Director Rasmus Høy Thomsen
”The new solution will make it fast and easy for seafarers to type in their seagoing service before applying for certificates. You can, inter alia, see whether you have sufficient seagoing service to have your certificates renewed, and you can get a record of your total seagoing service if, for example, you need this in relation to your employer."

With the new digital solution, there is no longer a need for shipowners to report seafarers' signing on and signing off. Therefore, the Danish Maritime Authority has, as of 1 January 2017, removed the mandatory reporting of the signing on and off for Danish ships.

Advantages of digital forms

Furthermore, the Danish Maritime Authority has digitalised a wide number of maritime forms. Consequently, you are no longer required to forward paper forms for, inter alia, the self-monitoring of your fishing vessel or applications for renewal of pilotage certificates. If your pleasure craft is not encumbered with mortgages, it is also possible to delete it by means of a digital form.

Should you need guidance for the system, the Danish Maritime Authority has made a number of guidelines – both on video and on paper.

“The Danish Maritime Authority sets the direction for future quality shipping”

Our field of responsibility is based on the shipping industry and its framework conditions, the ship and its crew. In addition, we are responsible for aids to navigation in the waters surrounding Denmark and ashore. In other words, the Danish Maritime Authority has the responsibility for the following:

  • The construction, equipment and operation of Danish ships (including safety, terror prevention, navigational regulations, manning, occupational health and environmental protection) as well as port State control of foreign ships calling at Danish ports.
  • Ship registration.
  • Seafarers’ employment, health and conditions of social security.
  • Shipping policy, maritime law as well as industrial policy, both nationally and internationally.
  • Tasks related to aids to navigation at sea and ashore (lighthouses and buoys), including ships and repair workshops.
  • Navigational information in the form of navigational analyses, warnings, GIS and specialist publications.
  • The national pilot authority.

The Danish Maritime Authority consists of the central authority, eight survey offices, including the office in Nuuk, Greenland, as well as the Centre of Maritime Health and Safety on the island of Fanø.

Our responsibility as a government agency applies both to the merchant fleet and the fishing industry. However, the Danish Maritime Authority is not responsible for the industrial policy relating to fishing which is under the auspices of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

Please observe that the surveillance of Danish waters and of civilian shipping, sovereignty enforcement, the police authority, pollution prevention, environmental surveillance, ice-breaking, etc. are the responsibility of the Ministry of Defence.

The Danish Maritime Authority is a government agency under the Ministry of Business and Growth.
