How Software Can Help Prevent Ship Detentions?



The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and IT Energy have released a new version of ISF Watchkeeper software, which helps prevent seafarer fatigue. Version 3.5 can also help ship operators avoid issues with port state control officials.

Upgraded software:

It was developed for maintaining records of individual seafarers’ work hour records, as required by IMO and International Labour Organization regulations. The software upgrade reflects the evolving needs of those at sea and managers ashore. It is available free of charge to existing ISF Watchkeeper users on more than 8,000 ships operating globally.

Work planning schedule:

ISF Watchkeeper 3.5 offers a new working schedule planning tool, a method of taking account of international dateline crossings, non-conformance activity capture, multi-language key reports and calculation improvements based on the standards of training, certification and watchkeeping 2010 Manila exceptions.

Improvements have also been made to Watchkeeper Online, which is designed to support shore-based personnel. ICS said it is many times faster, analysis capabilities are continually being added and the new working schedule report from ISF Watchkeeper 3.5 can be rapidly uploaded to Watchkeeper Online.
