Electronic certificates may be permitted in lieu of the traditional paper versions. Administrations that use electronic certificates should ensure that these certificates have the following features:

  • validity and consistency with the format and content required by the relevant international convention or instrument, as applicable
  • protected from edits, modifications or revisions other than those authorized by the issuer or the Administration;
  • a unique tracking number used for verification as defined in paragraphs 3.5 and 3.6. IMO FAL. 5/Circ. 39/REV. 2.
