If you are a Maritime Administration or other body with a legitimate interest, you may apply for access to the Register of Seafarers where you can check the validity of an Irish Certificate of Competency online.
If you have not been issued with a Certificate Verification Account you will need to register for access to the certificate verification portal.
Access to the certificate verification portal is restricted. Once your account information has been submitted and checked, you will receive an email containing a link that you can use to activate your account. Checking of your details is only done during office hours and it may take several days for your account to be activated.
