available on Apple, Android and Blackberry: The Correspondents app with contact details for the UK Club’s worldwide correspondents network. Search by Port or Country to find the local correspondent in the Club’s network.
Unlike the print publication, the app will always have the latest contact details and port information available – ensuring that you get the right contact quickly, with no delays.
For those users who may not always have access to an internet connection, the app has been designed to work off line, and will automatically update when the device connects over Wi-Fi allowing the app to be used on board ship without an internet connection.

Nearly 7500 people have downloaded the MLC app since it launched last year.
The ILO MLC Smartphone App aims to help owners, operators and crew comply with the Marine Labour Convention which comes into force in August 2013. To help reduce the risk of non-compliance, this app serves as an interactive checklist that enables ship operators to view the requirements on the ILO MLC and check activities off as they are completed. The ILO MLC App is available as a free download for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
LLoyd's Register and the UK P&I Club have launched a new ISM & ISPS pocket checklist app. Users can now save multiple checklists, add essential notes and send the completed checklists via email.
Port State Control detentions due to ISM failures are becoming more common as the authorities are grouping deficiencies together to justify detaining the ship. The objectives of the Internationsal Safety Management (ISM) Code are to ensure safety at sea, prevention of human injury or loss of life, and avoidance of damage to the enviroment and property. The objectives of the ISPS Code are to ensure security of ships and port facilities. The company is responsible for implementing an effective safety and security management system to ensure these objectives are met. By doing this, the risk to the fleet can be minimised and avoid costly fines and Port State Control detentions.
With the new app, ships' crews and their managers will be able to view the requirements of ISM & ISPS legislation and check off key activities as and when they are completed.
