The Liberian Registry, in partnership with Prevention at Sea Ltd., a Cyprus-based maritime compliance technology company, has launched an innovative software product designed to replace traditional paper oil record books (ORB) (Part 1 and Part 2) and to facilitate correct ORB entries into an efficient electronic format.
Liberia’s Electronic Oil Record Book (ε-ORB) is the most recent in a long line of ground-breaking industry initiatives designed to make the Liberian-flag fleet the safest, greenest and most efficient afloat. It is intended to address a variety of issues, including oil record books being reported missing on board, failure to document entries in the ORB of internal transfer of oily mixture, discrepancies between entry into the ORB and actual capacity of the oily water separator, and falsification of log entries.
Created in accordance with MARPOL requirements and certified by Lloyd’s Register under MEPC.1/Circ. 736/Rev. 2 guidelines, the ε-ORB is designed to establish transparency, credibility and traceability. All information is stored electronically through the use of a system back-up, making archiving easier and enabling past data to be revisited. The ε-ORB software will be available for use by shipowners, ship operators, and authorities world-wide.
For additional information and pricing on the ε-ORB software, please contact:
