A proposal for new legislation for digital ship registration has been submitted to the Danish Parliament.
Digitalisation of ship registration will reduce paper-work and time spent on transmission of documents. This will decrease time shipping companies spend on submitting documents for inspection and validation.
In order to facilitate the digitalisation of both deeds and mortgages as well as the work routines of registration, the new proposal aims at adapting provisions in the Maritime Act and the Mortgage Bill. These changes will make it easier to carry out digitalisation of the Danish register which is expected to happen in 2020.
