ABS Wavesight adds digital SIRE 2.0 inspection support

ABS Wavesight reports that it has added SIRE 2.0 functionality to its Nautical Systems maritime software platform, to assist vessel operators in digitalising the inspection process in line with the changing regulations.

Improvements have been made to the HSQE and Vetting Manager module to enable users to transition to SIRE 2.0’s risk-based approach, to support better management of areas of vulnerability and also allow future vessel performance to be more easily assessed.

The software now collects and centralises pre-inspection data, including areas of concern and risk assessment metrics, to facilitate sharing with inspectors for the SIRE 2.0 process and allowing them to then perform desktop reviews before stepping on board.

“Our enhanced service provides owners and operators with regulatory-rich software to support compliance and regulatory changes,” said Paul Sells, President and CEO of ABS Wavesight.

“The enhancements to the HSQE and Vetting Manager module facilitate and simplify the shift to a fully digital process and three-dimensional risk inspection, while offering deep insight into vessel and crew safety and performance.”

SIRE was first developed in 1993 by the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) and has been the industry-standard regime for inspecting the quality and operational safety of tankers. SIRE 2.0 is the first upgrade to the programme in 15 years and aims to address the impact of new technology on inspection workflows.
