ABS Nautical Systems (ABS NS) has launched a digital solution that replaces traditional paper logbooks and brings a new dimension to compliance management through a browser-based experience.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The launch of NS eLogs follows the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) non-mandatory adoption of electronic record books on 1 October 2020, welcoming digital entries on board.

NS eLogs helps shipowners and operators reduce operational costs, simplify user data entry, enhance data reliability and improve regulatory compliance. NS eLogs can function as a standalone application or be integrated into the NS Enterprise suite and will be accessible through the recently launched digital platform from ABS, My Digital Fleet.

"Electronic logbooks play a foundational role in the maritime industry's digital transformation," said Evan Gooch, president of ABS Nautical Systems. "NS eLogs overcomes traditional recordkeeping challenges by decreasing administrative work and enabling workforce productivity. This digital solution not only improves the quality and security of data but allows for easy replication to shore and remote accessibility."

Developed using the IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) standards, NS eLogs is authorised by all Flag States who accept Recognised Organisation (RO) approval, including Marshall Islands, Singapore, Isle of Man, Australia and the RO ABS. The solution includes over 20 electronic logbooks covering several areas of operation, including EU MRV, IMO DCS and MARPOL, to support environmental sustainability. Key features within the intuitive interface allow users to monitor KPIs, verify documents with e-signature and manage access through authorisations.

The launch of NS eLogs builds on advancements made over the last three years to support clients on their digital journey, including the release of three new software modules and five mobile applications to support crewmember safety and vessel performance. {/mprestriction}
