Our system checks other data pertinent to the certificate before providing the validation status.
Please type certificate number and last name as per DP certificate printed (please include any special characters shown on the certificate).
Please note that during the phasing in of the revalidation schedule some DP certificates issued before 2011 may show as expired unless they have been recently revalidated. This is normal and during this transition period, it is recommended that companies wishing to employ DPOs use the checker on this page to ensure they have been issued with an NI DP certificate but also check their DP logbooks along with any confirmation letters provided to ensure they have a sufficient amount of DP sea time logged as required by your company.
Please note that the decision to employ any DPO lies solely with the company employing them and The Nautical Institute assumes no responsibility for any losses due to a result of their employment.
