The regulatory landscape
Maritime is experiencing huge environmental change. The move to decarbonisation requires changes at a management and operational level.
New regulations through MARPOL, flag state, local, national and international levels are building on previous foundations to meet decarbonisation targets.
These are the minimum requirements, and vary by vessel type, age and location.
Vessel operators and owners have the known regulations to consider alongside those upcoming, and their own standards that may go above and beyond to operationalise throughout the fleet.
With EnviroManager, teams onboard and ashore can visualise and understand where environmental regulations are in effect and how these regulations will impact operations.
Operational events are broken down into detailed waste streams, with colour coding indicating whether a discharge is allowed, restricted or prohibited.
The robust database of regulatory data for over 500 environmental zones and 170 nations is maintained by a dedicated team who actively search and verify regulations.
EnviroManager+ provides additional layers of depth to EnviroManager. The Active Timeline provides granularity where regulations are in force or enter. This can be detailed to the minute, giving clarity around operational events and discharges that can safely and legally take place onboard.
Shoreside teams can embed company policies / processes that go above regulatory requirements into the environmental layer. These can be distributed to a single vessel or the full fleet, and considered throughout the passage planning process.
You can embed the entire timeline into Passage Plans and share with shoreside teams or for wider regulatory view – possibly forming part of a SEEMP action plan.
Electronic Record Books (ERBs) provide a digital timestamp for onboard events that crews can effortlessly complete and submit for shoreside teams to access, cross-reference, and analyse. LogCentral has a range of MARPOL record books.
ERBs help reduce errors and make it easier to track completion. You’ll be better able to monitor onboard environmental events and ensure record books are completed on time and to standard. Shoreside teams can analyse entries to gain a clear picture of where and when discharges are made, reviewing for accuracy and insights.
The OneOcean Philosophy
OneOcean sources, verifies and maintains the environmental regulation zones in one platform. Operators can add their own guidance on processes and policies into this same view, providing a single place to access all requirements in force.
A simplified workflow displays vessel-specific regulation, processes and procedures, making it easier for crew and teams ashore to understand the requirements for their voyage. Relevant ERBs can be completed and shared, providing clarity for onboard and shoreside teams as they access the same data workflows.
Policies and procedures from the company can be updated and deployed almost instantly for crew to see and respond appropriately. All regulations or zones from a local, national, regional or international level, or variable data such as whale migration locations, are verified and updated by OneOcean. This ensures you have the latest information available.
With the latest information in a single view, environmental decisions and action can be taken confidently. Both shoreside teams and crew aboard can access and visualise the same data, enabling them to work better together and ensure environmental compliance is realised.
From our very first conversation to ongoing support, customisation, and development, we’ll be a partner who puts your needs at the centre of everything we do.
