If you wish to dive into the technical information this is where you should start.
The current state of the MCP can be considered to be a “mature prototype” or “semi-operational”. As such, the requirements for the validation of the identities in the MCP are not finalised. Currently all partners of the projects "EfficienSea2”, “STM Validation project” and the “SMART Navigation Project” have access to the MCP. Furthermore, BIMCO’s member register (BIMCO extranet) have been federated into the core MCP ID register, and ID registers for IALA and CIRM members have been setup and also been federated into the core MCP ID register. Thus members of BIMCO, IALA and CIRM also have access to the MCP. Other organisations may be given access provided that they are a relevant potential user, and that their identity has been confirmed. Please apply for access through the MCP management portal.
