Panama approves digital Oil Record Book system

The Panama Maritime Authority has authorised Prevention at Sea to act as a recognised manufacturer and distributor of the Panamanian Oil Record Book in electronic format, alongside electronic versions of other official books in its library.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Prevention at Sea’s ε-ORB software, designed to be used for the preparation and printing of the traditional Oil Record Book, has already been approved by Lloyd’s Register, and complies with IMO guidelines published in the most recent fifth session of the Sub-Committee on Pollution Prevention and Response (PPR5) for electronic record books.

ε-ORB, the official Liberian Registry software, will be permissible to be used to replace the traditional paper Oil Record Book when MARPOL is amended to allow the use of paperless electronic record systems.

“We are proud to have won so many awards and Flag registry approvals in such a short space of time,” said Petros Achtypis, CEO of Prevention at Sea.

“Each Flag registry approval and recognition from the industry strengthens the fact that our system has proved its worth by saving ship operators and managers time and money, as it is easy to use and helps eliminate oil record book errors and the risk of PSC fines, making the whole system transparent, credible and traceable.”{/mprestriction}
