 Future shipping requires that both the maritime industry and the authorities utilise new technology and digital solutions to do their work smarter and better, the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) said in a press release.

 
"Attendees of the European Shipping Week on 28 February 2017, can learn about the visions for smart inspection and enforcement of maritime regulation, and take part in the subsequent debate on digital and technological potentials and challenges," it said.
 
Efficient enforcement of global maritime regulation makes great demands on all parties. At the same time, there is a demand for a reduction of the number of burdens imposed in connection with ship inspection. 
 
The relevant technology is available, but how can we use it to meet the challenges that we are faced with?
 
During the European Shipping, Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority, Andreas Nordseth, will invite the participants to engage in a debate on, inter alia, the above issues at the seminar on "Smart Enforcement". 
 
The debate will be kick-started by Andreas' presentation of the DMA's visions for an efficient and burden-free enforcement of global maritime regulation.
