Safebridge launches seafarer certification blockchain platform

Germany-based maritime training technology company Safebridge has launched myCert, a digital platform which utilises blockchain technology to provide a secure online environment to manage maritime certification.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The myCert system aims to connect three stakeholder groups: entities who issue certificates, the seafarers who hold those certificates, and anyone requiring to verify the validity of the certificates.

The system provides control over all documentation from a single platform, with secure access available from anywhere.

“We saw Safebridge’s myCert in action at INTERTANKO’s Seafarers’ Vetting Seminar, in the Philippines. Over 1,000 seafarers were in attendance and the system worked flawlessly,” said Dr Phil Belcher, marine director, INTERTANKO.

“The system ensured that all delegates received their certificate of attendance in a very efficient, fuss-free and timely manner.”

Safebridge says that it plans to follow this launch with the introduction of an additional module for myCert in the near future, which will allow companies to have a single point application to gather, organise and verify the certificates of all their ships and seafarers.{/mprestriction}
