Protect your crew – and the entire maritime industry – from rogue suppliers

Fake mooring certificates are an extremely serious problem in an industry where safety is paramount. The damage caused by rogue suppliers – whether to people, property, or businesses – can be catastrophic, so when it comes to mooring lines, purchasers need to be alert to the risk of counterfeit certification.

How to authenticate a mooring certificate

There are several steps that can help you assess the validity of a document. For full details, don’t hesitate to contact our team.

  • Look carefully at the perimeter of the document for issues with branding, logo, formatting, etc.

  • Scan the text for changes in font, format, or language

  • Read the document to check for inconsistencies, errors, validity, relevance, etc.

  • Compare the certificate with a publicly available version from the provider

  • Get a second (or third) opinion: ask colleagues, supply chain partners, the certification provider, etc.
