As of July 7th the TELSCOPE solution covers all record books including the MARPOL books. Our efforts to obtain flag state approvals for TELSCOPE is also moving forward and a significant number of flag states have recognized TELSCOPE electronic record books as a replacement for the physical books.
EXTENDED TELSCOPE TYPE APPROVAL
All ships with carriage requirements for log books and record books may use electronic solutions for this, in line with IMO regulations. However, it is necessary to obtain additional approval per. ship, from the ship's flag state. This is far easier to achieve with a type approved solution that documents compliance with ISO standard 21745 for electronic record books.
TELSCOPE is a comprehensive solution for electronic logbooks, checklists and future e-navigation services. The solution is type approved by DNV, in accordance with ISO 21745 - Electronic record books for ships and DNV's own class requirements. The solution is in line with SOLAS and MARPOL.
