Helping you comply with changing regulations

The regulatory world is always changing. We can help you understand what existing and forthcoming regulations mean for your ships and staff.

Achieving people-centred design and operations

Understanding the human element is an integral part of designing and building safe and efficient cruise ships, and a vital element in assuring the safety of passengers, crew and vessel operations.

Meanwhile, new human-oriented regulations and standards, such as the revised STCW Convention and Code present shipbuilders, operators and owners with new challenges for ship design and operation. Our human factors services provide you with confidence that the human element is integrated into every stage of your ship’s lifecycle. To find out more click here.

Pre-contract advice

We can provide impartial technical advice at a very early stage. This gives you the information needed to make a well informed decision before taking the big step into building and operating state-of-the-art designs. We consider not only design, but operational needs, providing unbiased and useful support on all aspects from fleet management to detailed technology.

Without obligation, we actively encourage, and participate in, meetings with all stakeholders to ensure an open approach from the start and promote the necessary bond required with the flag.
