ISPS PLAN APPROVAL
Sentinel have been involved with the ISPS Code since its inception. Our managing director was an observer at the diplomatic conference which adopted the ISPS Code and led a team of people which took some of the very first ships through the approval process. We are proud to have taken over 150 ships through the approval process, assisted major companies in training and process management, and conducted highly innovative and effective live exercises in four separate countries.
We have developed a simple, but effective system which uses an ACCESS database as the front-end to an open source (MySql) database which is output to a wiki. This combination allows us to manage the data entry process, but allows the client to interact with us in an intuitive manner. We currently use this system to manage the ISPS compliance process for a fleet of over 100 ships.
