InfoSHIP - Electronic LogBooks Software Approved by Major Flags


Published Sep 20, 2018 4:29 PM by The Maritime Executive

The shipping industry is rapidly changing: the IMO’s Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) has developed the draft guidelines for the use of electronic MARPOL record books, and it is anticipated that these guidelines will be adopted by IMO in 2019, a confirmation of how important it is to gain and share experience in the use of electronic record books (ELBs).

The maritime administrations of Panama, Marshall Islands, Cyprus and the Isle of Man have already recognized the use of InfoSHIP ELB software throughout their fleets to record the Oil Record Book (ORB) entries inasmuch as MARPOL requirements are fulfilled and the software generates the report in the official template. 

Thanks to the most relevant flag administrations' approval, InfoSHIP ELB, which is developed by the Italian software house IB, already provides a competitive advantage to its clients in assisting the crew during ORB operations, preventing heavy fines and reputational damage. 

The certification of the most relevant flag administrations in the world is a significant step towards giving shipping companies a competitive edge as they can now provide their fleets with innovative systems on board conceived to replace the hard copies.
