2012 Shipping | Written by Magdalena Tomasik | Friday, 13 July 2012
On Wednesday, the leading international classification society – Bureau Veritas, launched new, internet – based certification and ship status system. The technology aims at not only reducing the cost and workload of ship owners but also at simplifying the access to particular information about the ships and their most up to date status.
The new IT Certificate of Classification System consists of the key identity of the ship and basic notation information. The Certificate will be printed on special featured paper with logo to prevent illegal copies. All the information about vessels which used to be attached to the certificate as annexes will be now uploaded electronically to the on line based, international system.
The information is easily accessed by those who are given access by the information owner. The system also allows the staff to update any valuable information with regards to the vessel, for example the specific dates for the maintenance or inspections deadlines.
Bureau Veritas is an international leader in conformity assessment and certification services with the offices located all over the world (including all Arctic states). The organization helps the clients to improve their performance, by offering innovative and competitive solutions in order to meet the international standards in terms of public health, safety and environmental protection.
