The industry leading digital regulations tool making it quick and easy to stay up-to-date and comply with maritime regulations.

The Challenges

Remaining compliant with complex and ever-changing maritime regulations is a common challenge for seafaring companies. Depending on factors such as flag state, class, cargo, and location, ships must abide by a complex set of regulations.

Within international maritime law, regulations are governed by the IMO, under conventions and codes such as MARPOL, SOLAS, COLREG and IMDG. Classification societies, flag states, nations and ports also have their own ever-changing regulations.

Manually collecting data from multiple sources and interpreting how it will affect operations is time-consuming. Searching for updates across a variety of sources can also lead to human error.
