The INCASS project is a multifaceted project bringing together a range of experienced and dedicated partners in order to tackle the issue of ship inspection, identification of high-risk and sub-standard ships, providing access to information related to ship surveys independent of the ship flag state and inspection regime. Moreover the project tend to incorporate enhanced and harmonized cooperation of maritime stakeholders. Its main aim is to avoid ship accidents, promote maritime safety and protect the environment. Machinery and structural data from ship operations, inspection data and failures, is very valuable and could be used much more effectively to maximize benefits to the shipping business and the wider community.
