GL online database of regulation changes

  • Friday, 28 September 2007 | News

Germanischer Lloyd has released its new GL Rules Pilot system, an online database that gives individualised information about the effect that changes in regulations may have on any particular company, based on its fleet structure and specific information needs.

The service offers an overview of all the major changes in technical and operational requirements from organisations like from IMO, ILO and IACS, with rule entries organised by application date and ship-type. The database automatically links rule entries to the shipowner's fleet (if a GL-classed ship) or planned newbuildings.

Reverse searches are also possible, whereby choosing a particular rule entry will generate a list of affected ships.

Information tables give a summary of the regulation alteration with references to the source document, instrument, and specific regulation, while also allowing access to those source documents, consolidated regulation texts, and interpretations of the changes by GL's own experts.

The database is constantly updated to reflect the very latest rule changes. Access is available via the internet, while an optional e-mail notification service is included so users can be actively informed about any changes applicable to their fleet.

The GL Rules Pilot registration page can be found at
