Verifavia certifies IB’s InfoSHIP technology

IB has partnered with Verifavia Shipping to help shipping companies meet the demands of various environmental regulations including EU Monitoring Reporting and Verification (EU MRV), the International Maritime Organisation’s Data Collection System (IMO DCS), and Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM).

IB’s InfoSHIP is a web-based software suitable for all vessel types. It brings a high level of fleet control and efficiency to a broad range of technical processes. Verifavia Shipping will certify InfoSHIP Performance for the compliance of shipping emissions regulations, including EU MRV and IMO DCS requirements.

InfoSHIP is designed to apply new technologies as soon as they become available, and to facilitate integration with other systems to ensure an efficient and reliable process. IB and Verifavia Shipping have established a strategic cooperation to support compliance with IHM requirements. By integrating Verifavia Shipping’s “3 Way Plug & Play” IHM maintenance dashboard, shipowners have live access to the IHM maintenance status of the vessel and the system can automatically generate monthly or ad-hoc IHM maintenance reports to demonstrate implementation and compliance with regulations, also ensuring vessels are prepared for PSC inspections.

In accordance with the EU Ship Recycling Regulation and the Hong Kong Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, it is mandatory for ships to carry a certified and maintained IHM specifying the location and approximate quantities of hazardous materials – such as asbestos or ozone-depleting substances – onboard. The IHM Part I must be constantly maintained during the operational lifetime of a vessel which can be complicated and time consuming. This means that for all items and equipment installed, modernised or replaced, the IHM must be updated; from a coat of paint or the addition of a single gasket.

"The shipping industry is experiencing extensive and ongoing regulatory demands and needs confidence that its operations are compliant. Our and accurately, digital system will ensure this is done efficiently and – for IHM - also helps facilitate the renewal survey which is required every five years. Working in partnership to ensure the shipping industry is working in the most efficient and environmentally-responsible way is central to our approach. We look forward to collaborating with IB to develop our leading digital solutions even further," said Julien Dufour, CEO of Verifavia Shipping. 

Caterina Cerrini, strategic partnerships and business development manager at IB said: "Verifavia’s expertise combined with our digital InfoSHIP system will ensure our customers have a comprehensive, real-time solution to support ongoing regulatory compliance. The ability to match the IT solutions of IB with Verifavia’s unrivalled knowledge of EU MRV, IMO DCS and IHM regulations propels us full speed ahead towards our common goal of ensuring clients can manage their fleets efficiently, in a simple and reliable way."
