LR introduces compliance framework for digital twins

Lloyd’s Register (LR) announced at SMM this week that it has developed the first ever data-driven compliance framework for the marine and offshore industry, ‘Digital Compliance’.

The framework was launched in response to the increasing use of advance of digital twins within vessel digital health management (DHM) systems and offers different levels of Digital Compliance: Digital Twin READY, Digital Twin COMMISSIONED, and Digital Twin LIVE.

LR Marine and Offshore director Nick Brown commented: “Digital Compliance is the framework that sets the foundation for what we call ‘Digital Class’ … [which] is the vision we have, where advanced technology and data-driven techniques will allow our clients to demonstrate compliance with Class requirements in the future, remotely, periodically and/or continuously and we are actively engaging with flags to discuss how we can extend this to statutory aspects.”
