BIMCO Releases Vessel CD-ROM 2002

Wednesday, January 09, 2002
Direct access to the internet from ships at sea can be costly. BIMCO has developed a solution to this problem. BIMCO has transferred a number of its databases from the BIMCO Website into a CD-ROM for use on board ships. The BIMCO Vessel CD-ROM 2002 provides senior officers at sea with BIMCO information and databases already available to shore-based staff with access to the Internet. The CD-ROM is easy to install on any PC on board and contains extensive information on: World Ports Reception Facilities Repair Facilities Bulk Terminal Reports Ballast/Sewage Holidays and Working Hours Navigation and Communication, including Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) Requirements Winter Navigation and Ice Warranties Limits Load Line Zones Trading Restrictions Ship Security Cargoes Future International Maritime Organization (IMO) Requirements IMO Circulars and Guidance Documents European Union Maritime Issues Inspection and Port State Control (PSC) Marine Pollution Act (MARPOL) Issues Garbage Management Quality Assurance and Safety Management, including an overview of: - Risk Management, - International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) 9000 Requirements, and - International Safety Management Code (ISM) BIMCO Reporting forms Standards for Training Certification and Watchkeeping Convention (STCW95) Guidance Flag Related Issues

In addition, the BIMCO Vessel CD-ROM 2002 includes details of the various IMO conventions to which each flag is a signatory, as well as information on flag state requirements for crews, including language skills and certification. Countries with restrictions against certain flags are also indicated. System requirements: Pentium Processor >= 100 MHz 32 MB RAM CD-ROM Drive Screen with Super VGA resolution (600 x 800) Windows 95 or later Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.x or later (not included on the CD-ROM) The BIMCO Vessel CD-ROM 2002 is available exclusively to BIMCO owner-members at a price of DKK 680 (USD 83.00) per disc with quantity discounts of between 10-50 percent available for bulk orders. BIMCO has also introduced a subscription service for its Vessel CD-ROM 2002 in order to despatch the Vessel CD-ROM in conjunction with the annual update of all the databases.
