  • Specify checklists for any type of inspection. Maintain all previous versions of the checklists using the Revision Check List control system.
  • Automatically create cumulative Lists of findings of inspections/audits and distribute them to vessels. Record replies from vessels and monitor any non-compliance. Archive all cumulative lists for future reference.

Security / Audit

  • Permissions are implemented to the users in order to control the actions that they can execute to the system.
  • Locks are put in inspections reports that have already being sent to majors in order to prevent changes. Only the authorized user (super user) can unlock the case in order to implement the required changes.
  • The superintendent is assigned with user’s role in the system to maintain inspections & deficiencies, only in the vessels he/she is responsible for.
