Australia’s BlockChain Mate recognised as a
finalist in the 2017 Lloyds List Intelligence
Maritime Innovation Award

Solution – “Competence Passport” that removes the paper and provides a
seamless and secure solution for international mariner qualifications.
Melbourne, Australia, 01 st October 2017: BlockChain Mate was named as a finalist in the
Innovation category for the Lloyd’s List 2017 Asia, Middle East and Africa Maritime
Awards. The aggregation of electronic certificates from multiple, disparate sources
into one easy view and shareable solution is a world first that will be the envy of many
international industries, led by the maritime industry.
BlockChain Mate was chosen and recognised for its innovative approach to providing
a platform that links sovereign government, training institution, medical examiners,
shipping companies and, of course, maritime professionals.
In addition to Certificate of Competence, Short Courses, International Endorsements,
the blockchain based “Competence Passport” contains revolutionary Dual Signed
Work Agreements and Medical Fitness Certificates required under International and
Maritime Labour Conventions. These are validated and stored using blockchain
technology - providing a single source compliance solution for Port State control and
an electronic source of data that can be integrated into existing industry solutions using
BlockChain Mate uses a private permissioned blockchain solution for this application
in the maritime industry. Where Competence Passport is extended to other industry
sectors, for example aviation and medical, public blockchain solutions will be tailored
to suit. Competence Passport provides all necessary functionality to provide an
industry vertical solution, a generation ahead of other simple single certificate
blockchain applications being developed elsewhere.
BlockChain Mate joins a distinguished list of award finalists and shipping industry
leaders in Dubai on 28 th November 2017 for the Awards presentation.
