ISF Watchkeeper

ISF Watchkeeper is the industry leading standard software for helping shipping companies comply with seafarers’ work and rest hours under the ILO Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) and IMO STCW Convention.

First developed in 1997 by the International Shipping Federation (ISF) – which is now part of ICS – and IT Energy, companies can use the software to:

  • Maintain records of seafarers’ hours of work or rest;
  • Demonstrate compliance with the work or rest hour requirements, e.g. during Flag or Port State Control inspections;
  • Track non-conformances; and
  • Monitor trends in work or rest hours and shipboard working arrangements.

ISF Watchkeeper can help ship operators comply with international regulations, mitigate and manage seafarer fatigue, leading to safer ship operations.
