 Once again, the U.S. Coast Guard has issued Denmark with the well-reputed certificate for United States Coast Guard's Quality Shipping for the 21st Century Program (QUALSHIP 21).

 
The program is intended to secure and improve shipping and has existed since 2001. The program aims at identifying high quality ships and promoting quality shipping in this manner.
 
Denmark has just received a diploma as evidence of the fact that Danish shipping maintains the standards of quality shipping.
 
"Naturally, I am pleased that Danish shipping meets the high standards characteristic of quality shipping. Quality shipping is the foundation of the maritime industry in Denmark. Safety and growth go hand-in-hand," says Director General Andreas Nordseth of the Danish Maritime Authority.
 
The QUALSHIP 21 requirements have become stricter since last year, and the requirements for flag States being QUALSHIP 21 approved have become more rigorous.
 
- This recognition stresses once again that Danish ships are quality ships and it is a distinction that will also benefit Danish shipping's possibilities of operating in international waters, says Andreas Nordseth.
 
QUALSHIP 21 is the port State control regime in the USA just as Paris MoU and Tokyo MoU. Currently, 18 countries have received the  QUALSHIP 21 certificate.
 
At the same time, Denmark figures among the top countries on the so-called Whitelists within the port State control regimes of Paris MoU and Tokyo MoU.
