Navigating the complex web of environmental regulations governing the maritime industry may be simplified with Ocean Guardian, a new tool created by Total Marine Solutions, according to a statement from the company.

The product launched to fanfare at this week's quickly-expanding Connecticut Maritime Association (CMA) event.

Total Marine Solutions said its new system "simplifies a shipboard operator’s ability to comply with marine environmental regulations by taking the guesswork out of determining which regulations apply to a specific area."

“There are numerous governing bodies which regulate emissions and discharge for each country and region. The regulations are updated and modified regularly, making it difficult for onboard operators to ensure compliance with the most up-to-date rules and guidance,” said Total Marine Solutions’ President Alexandra Anagnostis-Irons. “Ocean Guardian is an easy-to-use program that provides operators with immediate access to the latest regulations at the click of a button.”

“Today’s heightened regulatory environment has resulted in greater challenges for the maritime industry. Enforcement agencies are taking stronger action to hold those who violate environmental regulations accountable for marine pollution,” said Anagnostis-Irons. “In the last several years we have seen record-breaking fines imposed. Ocean Guardian is designed to help companies facilitate consistent compliance throughout their fleet.”

Designed for the international maritime industry, Ocean Guardian’s database not only is updated by experienced marine professionals, but further verified and vetted by a third-party, independent maritime law firm to give clients the confidence of knowing that the information they have is the most up-to-date possible.
