Towing Vessel Record Audits

BargeOps can automatically generate a new Towing Vessel Record (TVR) for a boat. Follow this link to an earlier post if you’d like to learn more about the TVR in general. Our customers were looking for an easier way to see when changes are made to source data that affect a TVR once that TVR has been finalized. Unfortunately, mistakes can happen onboard and upon review need to be corrected. We’ve added a new feature which makes it easy to see any changes to a TVR to help our customers comply with Subchapter M requirements.

Subchapter M requires that revisions to a TVR are tracked. The information necessary for a revision include:

  • Date & time
  • Name of person who made the change
  • The field that was changed
  • The prior value of the field
  • The new value of the field

A few examples of what could trigger an item to appear in the audited list of changes for a TVR include:

  • Add, modify, or delete a deck log activity
  • Add, modify, or delete a barge on a deck log activity
  • Add, modify, or delete a crew member on a deck log activity
  • Changes to timing of orders

The team at BargeOps understands that compliance with Subchapter M is a challenge for towboats in the US. Our goal is to make tracking, reporting, and reviewing this critical information as easy as possible.
