Carnival Cruise Line has agreed a new contract with ChartCo to outfit its fleet with the Regs4ships regulation compliance management system, the companies report.
ChartCo was already supplying 75% of the fleet of parent company Carnival Corporation prior to this new deal, including Princess Cruises, Holland America, P&O Cruises, Costa, Aida, Cunard Line and Seabourn. Under the terms of the new agreement, all 26 Carnival Cruise Line vessels will be provided with the Regs4ships system.
Regs4ships is used to maintain compliance with constantly updating regulatory amendments, to reduce the risk of overlooking changes in new regulations that could impact upon a vessel operator’s business.
“Regs4ships has already assisted Carnival Corporation for what is now approaching 15 years,” said Giuseppe Benincasa, Nautical Manager for Carnival Cruise Line.
“In today’s highly complex regulatory environment it made sense for us to begin using the solution across our entire fleet. Regulatory compliance is a top priority challenge for cruise ships and Regs4ships represents a smart, dependable, effortless and time-saving way to synchronise compliance across fleets and head offices.”
“We are happy to utilise their valuable services on board as an invaluable asset for the other 26 cruise liners in our fleet.”
The Regs4ships regulatory management system includes IMO, ILO and EU legislation for the oil and gas, commercial shipping and cruise industries, and is currently being used on board approximately 6,000 vessels.
