BargeOps VGP Compliance
BargeOps VGP Compliance Overview
Regulatory compliance on the river is one of many challenges for inland marine operators. The EPA’s regulations related to VGP (Vessel General Permit) are an area that require the regular completion of many different forms with accurate data to ensure compliance.
The BargeOps VGP Compliance module helps fleeting and towing companies comply with the VGP requirements by replacing the very time consuming, paper-driven process (which includes a lot of forms as well as tracking data in various Excel spreadsheets) with forms embedded in BargeOps as part of the routine workflow.
The VGP Forms Service covers the forms that are critical for regulatory compliance.
The forms available as part of this service include:
- Barge Inspection Form
- Tank Barge Observation
- Pilothouse NPDES Logsheet
- Pilothouse Graywater Discharge Logsheet
- Engine room Maintenance/Inspection Logsheet
- Deck Maintenance/Inspection Logsheet
