The Panama Marine Authority has confirmed the Transas Electronic Logbook as equivalent to the paper version for use on board the ships registered under the Panamanian Flag.
Successful approval of the Transas e-Logbook by the largest shipping flag state is an important milestone in executing company’s strategy to develop and deliver high-quality reliable e-Navigation products to its customers.
The Transas Electronic Logbook (e-Logbook) is designed to replace traditional paper logbook and to record all data in full detail with a minimum input from a user. It is available as a software option for all users of the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS, the most popular ECDIS system among seafarers, and enables automated reporting. In combination with the e-Checklist, it is a perfect tool for monitoring and documenting that bridge procedures are carried out in a proper way.
Already being used by many shipping companies on board of their vessels, Transas e-Logbook proved to significantly improve onboard operations. With the Panamanian approval large proportion of the world’s fleet will now be able to benefit from this solution. Transas e-Logbook is compliant with the IMO Resolution A.916 (22) – Guidelines for the recording of events related to navigation and is certified by the DNV-GL.
