Crew list certificate of change Crew List Certificate of Change: If a ship had already obtained a clearance from the customs collector or consular official at a port, and a change in the composition of the crew was made, some official documentation of the change was required. A Certificate of Change could be obtained quickly from a notary public, thus authenticating the alteration and avoiding problems at the next port. The document included the names of crew members who left or boarded the vessel before sailing, the vessel's name, and the notary's signature and official seal.
