Launched in late 2016, WayPoint provides the owners and operators of Liberian-flag ships with secure, real-time access to their fleet details, and facilitates International Convention certification applications.

Last year, it was upgraded to include several improvements engineered to enable owners and operators to more efficiently manage their fleet-wide regulatory compliance issues.

LISCR said that it has started including QR Codes to improve the document verification process.

This feature will enable port state control and other interested parties to scan the QR matrix barcode with their mobile phones. They will be directed to the verification page after that where they can view the verification copy of the document and also download it.

Liberia has also introduced a variety of embedded security features to enhance the electronic integrity of its electronic certificates.

“Liberia has further strengthened its reputation as the world’s most technologically advanced and sophisticated ship register.”

LISCR CEO Scott Bergeron said: “Liberia was the first flag state to make widespread use of electronic certificates in 2009.

“We are very happy to see other flags and recognised organisations follow our lead with their own electronic certifications.

“As technology evolves, so does the need to ensure that security and verification features are robust enough to meet cyber challenges.

“With this latest update, Liberia has further strengthened its reputation as the world’s most technologically advanced and sophisticated ship register, taking the pain and expense of document verification away from owners and operators and freeing up their time to concentrate on making their vessels safer and more profitable.”
