DNV has introduced a new digital tool, Compliance Planner, for its users to track the requirements and legislation deadlines for their vessels and fleets.

The tool will display all the requirements, as well as a customised list of actions regarding any vessel or fleet to ensure compliance.

Compliance Planner presents the requirements that have been fulfilled, along with those that have not yet been met.

DNV stated that the tool will help diminish the burden on ship owners and operators associated with navigating regulation timelines and requirements.

DNV Maritime CEO Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen said: “With Compliance Planner, we are now able to offer our customers a comprehensive and simple tool that can keep them not only in compliance but ahead of the regulatory curve.

“This is another significant advance in our digital journey towards making the assurance process as forward-looking and frictionless as possible.”

Once logged in, the planner displays all the forthcoming statutory requirements based on the ships in Veracity – Fleet Status.

The results are then filtered and presented according to the vessels within a client’s fleet as well as being organised by mandatory and optional requirements.

The tool aims to provide an accessible information resource that will allow users to stay up to date with new regulations.

DNV Maritime regulatory affairs director Georgios Kasimatis added: “This is the first time that a classification society has put together this information in a way that is simple, accessible and automatically shows an owner or operator which regulations are affecting their fleet and when.”

The company also stated that the inclusion of Flag State requirements is being planned as part of a future update.

Earlier this month, marine robotics technology firm Ocean Infinity selected the ShipManager fleet management software from DNV for its 17 new robotic vessels and autonomous underwater vehicles.
