ABS launches app to simplify compliance reporting

Software is designed to facilitate compliance with a range of regulations, including EU MRV.





Updated on 29 May 2017 10:32 GMT

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), a provider of classification and technical services to the offshore and marine industries, has launched ABS Nautical Systems NS Voyage Manager to simplify compliance reporting.

The cloud-based, subscription application is designed to facilitate compliance with a range of environmental regulations, including the European Union (EU) Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) regulation for CO2 emissions.

"With EU MRV already in effect and additional regulations on the horizon, such as the International Maritime Organization's Data Collection System requirement, operators need an easy way to manage the increasing volume of data required for reporting," said Howard Fireman, ABS Chief Technology Officer and ABS Nautical Systems President. "NS Voyage Manager is deployed quickly and accurately to collect data that supports regulatory compliance."

The software integrates data collected for noon reports or through the NS AutoLogger in the NS database, automating and simplifying the compliance reporting process. The NS AutoLogger captures data directly from sensors and ship systems to improve the accuracy of logged data. The data captured can be expanded to support other operational activities, including performance management.

"Including the NS AutoLogger with NS Voyage Manager substantially improves data accuracy and reduces the reporting burdens on the crew," remarked Stephen Schwarz, ABS Nautical Systems Chief Operating Officer and Vice President. "This new module is also flexible and can be expanded and customized based on any operator's requirements."

The software is configured to a client's EU MRV monitoring plan; it is designed to facilitate submission to the third party verifier and to automatically report verified compliance data directly to the EU.

NS Voyage Manager also captures bunker delivery notes for MRV compliance and supports other environmental compliance activities, including ballast water exchange, fuel wwitching (ECA Compliance), garbage record Book, oil record book, vessel general permit (VGP), and IMO DCS.
