Track vessel activity and verify cargo and vessel documentation with confidence
Following the recent North Korea sanctions advisory dated (March 21, 2019) issued by the US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Affairs (OFAC), IHS Markit can support analysis requests in relation to:
- Disabling Automatic Identification System (AIS)
- Physically altering vessel identification
- Ship-to-Ship transfers
- Falsifying cargo and vessel documents
- Manipulating AIS
In the position of sole appointed authority of the IMO numbering scheme we can provide detailed vessel information. In addition, IHS Markit offers a risk profile of vessels that matches against any sanctions lists such as OFAC and is supplemented with detailed ownership intelligence and casualty reports.
