Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, 2007

Today we’re announcing general availability for certificate generation related to the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, 2007. Registries are now able to generate Removal of Wrecks certificates from a vessel's detail page without any further configuration.

This is another big step forward to support hard-working registrars deliver clients exceptional service. The feature has been in beta for a while, and we’ve seen great adoption and positive feedback.

In the same manner as Bunkers and CLC certificates, the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks requires each vessel to have a policy of insurance or other financial security satisfying the requirements of Article 12.

The standard certificate design as outlined in the convention is available by default. If you want to use a custom-designed template, implementation is quick and easy.

Generating Removal of Wrecks certificates

As mentioned above, there is no specific configuration requirement to use this new functionality.

When issuing a certificate for the first time, simply visit the vessel details page and select the Nairobi Wrecks certificate option from within the "Issue a Certificate" lightbox. You'll be prompted to enter the specific details of the insurer, as well as issue / expiry dates for the certificate.

We’re excited about this new feature as we know issuing certificates is an important part of many of our users’ workflow. With the addition of the Removal of Wrecks certificates for Vessel HQ, we’ve made the process of tracking & issuing these certificates much simpler.
