Survey and eCertificate Solution

Place your mark on the new standard solution

We are building a new state-of-the-art global solution. It is based on our survey and eCertificate solution made for the Danish Maritime Authority during 2016.

You can be among the first costumers – we need your valuable input. Together, we will shape the new solution based on your needs.


In the survey and eCertificate solution, the flag state surveyor issues survey reports and electronic certificates.

The surveyor has a complete overview of the surveys, he has to carry out. This includes meeting information, type of survey, ship data, owner data, faults and defects, checklists, validity of certificates, previous reports, themes, legislation and guidelines and history.

If several surveyors carry out the same survey, they all access the same overview. They each write a part of the same report. Upon synchronization the parts merge together into a single report and is ready to be presented at the hearing on board.

The solution is fully functional even without Internet connection.

Only relevant information is shown to the surveyor. Checklists, types of certificates, themes, legislation and guidelines are filtered by type of ship and type of survey.

The Maritime Authority maintains the filtration of certificates per ship type, checkpoints, standard phrases, guidelines, themes and legislation.

Certificates are issued and signed digitally on board. As soon as the survey report is finished or the certificates are endorsed or issued, they are available to all parties. The maritime authority, the ship owner and the crew can easily access the information. The port states receive a copy version of the certificates.
