PANAMA CANAL AUDIT PROCEDURE OF THE SOFTWARE USED FOR CALCULATION OF THE PC/UMS

The authorities will undertake an audit/verification procedure of the software used for the calculation of the Panama Canal/Universal measurement System (PC/UMS). For this audit they will require access to vessel general arrangement, lines and body plans. Their procedures will be developed in such a way as to maintain strict confidentiality of any proprietary information and the expeditious return of these plans following their review. The Admeasurement Unit will contact each vessel owner to coordinate the safe and prompt delivery of such plans. (Ref. MR’s Advisory to Shipping No. A-28-2000).
