Electronic Certificates - Paris MoU issues guidelines


The Paris Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has issued guidelines for the use of electronic certificates. 


The guidelines establish a recognised set of features for the use of such certificates, which in turn will allow port state control officers (PCSO) to accept certificates with these features. However proof of its validity may still be requested by the PSCO.
