Panama Marine Authority approves Transas e-Logbook

(HAMBURG, Germany) — The Panama Marine Authority has confirmed the Transas electronic logbook as equivalent to the paper version for use on ships registered under the Panamanian flag.

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 logbooks and to record all data in full detail with 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 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 their vessels, Transas e-Logbook proved to significantly improve onboard operations. With the Panamanian approval, a large portion 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 DNV GL.
