Updates from 4th GA
At the 4th General Assembly of the MCP Consortium held in June 2021, documents defining the criteria for being an MCP identity service provider were adopted. This is a very big milestone for the consortium, and the next step will be to officially endorse organisations to be such. The first organisation expected to be endorsed is the Navelink Consortium.
The MCP Consortium is now focusing on making similar definitions for being service providers of MSR (Maritime Service Registry) and MMS (Maritime Messaging Service).
The MCP is a decentralised platform that facilitates secure and reliable information exchange within the maritime domain and beyond. Beyond – because the maritime world isn’t isolated, but need to exchange information with other domain – for instance with other transport domains.
The information exchanged can be almost of any nature, ranging from private confidential information between a vessel and the shore office of the shipowner, to public information provided by authorities, such as the provision of navigational warnings.
