Maritime documents and booklets

International legislation is due to change on a constant base. More and more stringent requirements are being im- posed on the equipment of the ship. These requirements are recorded in MEPC.1 / Circ.873, issued by IMO.

We know your branche

TOP has built up extensive experience in the field of setting up manuals since 1989. Thanks to our specialist knowledge in the maritime field, we can be of service to you with provid- ing practical and workable manuals.

We offer the best solution

Thanks to close contact with the ‘Shipping Division’, the KVNR and contacts with flag state representatives, TOP is closely following developments in this area.

Worldwide coverage

At TOP, we believe in fast and reliable delivery of this “mandatory cost”. We have converted our years of experi- ence in the field of maritime legislation and regulations into practical manuals. Think of the reasonably standard SOPEP manuals up to specific Emergency Towing Manuals, for example.

We provide the shipping company or shipowner with a questionnaire with all mandatory items that must be men- tioned. Based on this, we compile a ship specific manu- al .The specifics are described on base of drawings and other (technical) specifications. We also submit the manuals to the classification society of the customer. The end prod- uct is a booklet that meets the latest regulations and is prac- tically applicable by the crew. If desired, the bridge manuals can also be delivered in the customer’s house style.

Acceptation by class

We are noticing that Class still refers shipowners to TOP, in order to ensure that the obligatory booklets are at the right level. A manual from TOP also gives confidence in practical interpretation of the legal base.
