DMA announces that all Danish ships of 300 gross tonnage or more shall carry a certificate confirming that insurance covers maritime claims.
DMA accepts a Certificate of Entry containing information as specified in § § 3 and 4 of Executive Order No. 1259 of 16 December 2012. Danish ships with a valid certificate of this type should not inform the Danish Maritime Authority.
Danish ships without a Certificate of Entry must once each calendar year inform the Danish Maritime Authority on the kind of insurance that has been made. For 2013, the notification shall be given by 31 March 2013.
The requirement for a certificate on board also applies to foreign ships of 300 gross tonnage or more that enter or leave Danish ports or other loading and unloading stations in Danish territorial waters. Foreign ships must not inform the Danish Maritime Authority on the kind of insurance they have signed, but checks as to whether the insurance has been made will be part of the Danish Maritime Authority’s general control of foreign ships.
