New regulations are a constant factor within the Maritime Industry. There are changes imposed from new legislation, implementation of new technology, economically motivated changes and changes driven by consumer behavior to name a few drivers of change in the Maritime Industry. However, onboard the ship, shipowners strive to keep crewmember numbers at a minimum, which allow for normal maintenance and running the vessel but limits the resources to keep up with the regulations. Simultaneously, economically motivated incentives, have made mixed nationality crews and sourcing of employees from all over the world the new standard. This creates a multifaceted challenge to implement standards from a shore-based organization to a fleet of vessels.
