Panama Uses Electronic Logbooks

Friday, January 04, 2008
The Panamanian flag state administration has authorized the use of electronic logbooks onboard all Panamanian flag vessels. Kongsberg Maritime's current generation electronic logbook, K-Log is already installed on several vessels and approved by IMO and SOLAS, and accepted by Norway (NOR/NIS), Sweden, Denmark, United Kingdom (MCA), Bahamas, Singapore, Isle of Man, Marshall Islands and Malta. With Panamanian approval, a large proportion of the world's merchant fleet are now able to make use of this forward looking system. Due to a recent legislative amendment, an E-license is required in order to use electronic logbooks onboard any ship. Users will benefit from the convenience of obtaining a single annual E-License rather than buying each of the traditional printed log books used onboard during the year.
