By The Maritime Executive 12-07-2018 08:07:18

MESPAS, the cloud-based maritime software company, has just released its latest software update with various features to make the lives of safety and quality managers easier. OCIMF vetting inspection reports can now be imported and issues tracked and resolved; MESPAS Analytics is now both MRV and IMO DCS compliant; ISM forms and tasks can be linked.

OCIMF (Oil Companies International Marine Forum) reporting made easier

After third party inspections of tankers by oil majors, superintendents can now automatically import the OCIMF vessel inspection questionnaire (VIQ) to the MESPAS QHSE module, generate the inspection record and a task list of all non-conformities. Issues can be tracked and resolved, reductions in nonconformities graphically demonstrated and quality improved. At subsequent inspections superintendents can demonstrate that they are continually improving their systems.

ISM easier to use

When following up reported incidents via ISM (International Safety Management) managers using MESPAS now have all the information at their fingertips. ISM forms and tasks can now be linked for easy tracking and resolving. The forms, using Adobe technology, can be created by customers and adapted to their specific requirements. Key performance indicators can be easily analysed via automatically generated reports. Certificates can also be reviewed and expiry dates tracked.

MESPAS customers can now automatically report CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. They are MRV and IMO DCS compliant.

CO2 emissions data for voyages in the reporting period 2018, for ships over 5,000 gross tonnage, must be reported to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) as of January 2019. MESPAS Analytics software enables ship managers to collect and aggregate this data and upload it to the EMSA system
for reporting.

As of January 2019, similar reporting regulations for fuel consumption will also come in to play internationally with IMO DCS. All MESPAS customers using our MRV tools are now automatically also IMO DCS compliant.
