Marine Electronic Document Validation

The Marine Electronic Document Validation tool will confirm the validity of electronic documents issued to Canadian vessels, ports or facilities by Transport Canada - Marine Safety and Security.

To display all valid documents for a vessel, port or a facility, use the dropdown list to search by a vessel's official number, port, facility or IMO number.

To display information for issued specific document, use the dropdown list to search by Unique Document Number (UDN).

If you experience an issue using the tool or if you have concerns with the search results for a provided vessel, port, facility or issued document, please contact Flag State Inspection Standards at
