About this consultation
This consultation targets people and organizations with an interest in inland navigation:
• Crew members and shipboard personnel;
• Other actors in the inland waterway transport operation chain (users and suppliers of inland waterway transport) such as freight forwarders, logistics services providers and shippers, tour operators, employment agencies, terminal operators;
• IT providers;
• Academia and researchers;
Why we are consulting
The consultation aims at providing the wide public with an opportunity to express its views on the processing of information aimed at complying with inland waterway transport regulatory requirements, in particular on possible measures to address some identified problems.
The consultation concerns more specifically the use of electronic tools instead of paper service record books (personal register recording details of a crew member's service history), paper logbooks (official record of the journeys made by a vessel and its crewing history), paper working time sheets as well as other official documents related to the crew members or the vessels.
