What is PC/UMS Documentation of Total Volume and a PC/UMS Net Tonnage Certificate?

PC/UMS Documentation of Total Volume is a certificate that must be obtained by the owner of a ship intended to transit the Panama Canal.Β 

It must be surrendered, with certain ship’s plans, on arrival at the Canal entrance, where the ship’s total volume will be verified by the Panama Canal Authority (ACP). For future transits the ACP will then deliver to the ship a PC/UMS Net Tonnage Certificate.
