'PSC Ready' assists ship managers and their crews in
planning and ensuring readiness for port state control
inspections. 'PSC Ready' is a cloud-based and secure application,
downloadable for both IOS and Android.
The application helps ensure that ship owners are able to focus
on all the requirements needed to be ready for PSC inspections.
The benefits of 'PSC Ready' include:
* Helping ensure compliance with applicable requirements
* Enhancing ship maintenance by developing crews' awareness of
safety, environmental and employment requirements as well as
those for ship structures and equipment
* The opportunity to improve PSC performance worldwide
* Training crews to detect, correct and avoid deficiencies
* Access to statistics, data and news on PSC developments
* 'Check offline, report online' functionality recognizing that
data connections cannot always be available on-board
The application enables PSC awareness to be shared across a
company's fleet, the sharing and analysis of records and
performance with management and clients and the promotion of
awareness of specific PSC concentrated inspection campaigns - all
with access to the latest information about PSC areas of focus
Laurent Leblanc , Vice President and Marine Operations Director,
Bureau Veritas said: 'We wanted to ensure that shipowners and
their crews know what Port State Inspections require and to help
them manage those requirements - all with a practical, digital,
tool. This application provides the most up-to-date route to
manage PSC planning and performance, enabling data and best
practice to be shared on-board and across fleets.'
'Port state control is a major operational factor for shipowners
and the bottom line is both safety and preventing unexpected
operational loss of time and cost.'
'PSC Ready' was developed and refined in pilot projects with
shipowners world-wide. The version released today reflects their
guidance, input, advice and feedback. It is available for
download at Google Play and Apple's Apps Store.
