Remote services provide a sustainable alternative to the common practice of flying superintendents to vessel drydocks and ship inspections around the globe. Since no physical presence of the auditor is required onboard, remote services are cost-effective, time-efficient and safe – e.g. during times affected by travel limitations.

Remote VDR audits

A remote voyage data recorder (VDR) navigation audit by our HMA experts provides an unbiased, independent evaluation of whether the correct bridge procedures are being followed and the bridge team is working effectively. This analysis is invaluable for preventing navigational incidents and improving safety at sea and can be followed by targeted on-board training. Remote VDR audits are the safest and most cost-effective way to schedule a complete navigation assessment.

  • No auditor presence on board, clients choose the time and place of the audit
  • Data can be shared with the bridge team for a better understanding of the findings
  • Data can be paused, rewound, and replayed
  • Audit thoroughly covers the compliance with industry requirements
  • Realistic evaluation of the status quo thanks to unannounced audits
  • Fixed costs

Remote magnetic compass adjustment

Despite our high-tech age, vessel owners, vessel operators, masters, officers, coastal pilots and industry organisations are recognising the importance of non-digital conventional equipment like magnetic compasses. Our remote deviation adjustment provides clear instructions to officers on board via the vessel’s e-mail.


  • Considerably reduces the cost
  • Is time efficient as there is no embarkation/disembarkation of the adjustor involved
  • Can be done while the vessel is underway towards her next port of call
  • Eliminates the need to make full 360-degree turns, as we use only one quadrant of deviation data

Remote inventory of hazardous material (IHM)

A well-documented inventory of hazardous materials (IHM) is a fundamental requirement by the EU SRR and IMO HKC – the two conventions currently regulating the use of non-hazardous material onboard ships. To ensure the safest standard of compliance, our specialist auditors will review all your shipboard documentation and evaluate the data against statutory requirements.

Ship’s valuation
