Digital Service Record Book (D-SRB) launched by PYA

The Professional Yachting Association (PYA) has launched its Digital Service Record Book (D-SRB), available to all members and yacht crew who need to have their sea service verified. This innovative service is part of the sea-time verification, which the PYA undertakes on behalf of the UK Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA).

“The availability of our digital record book is fantastic news for all yacht crew worldwide,” said Jane Hardy, PYA board member and D-SRB project director. “It will result in a huge increase in speed, time and efficiency in recording sea service and applying for NoEs, CoCs and other certification moving forwards.”

Due to the international nature of the yachting industry and the constant movement of crew across multiple locations worldwide, the Professional Yachting Association recognised early on the need to move more and more of its services online to increase the ease and efficiency of its members’ access to them.

“The D-SRB replaces our well-established Service Record Book (SRB). Crew are able to upload key information into their online profile and visualise their verified sea-time and qualifications with the D-SRB – anywhere, at any time,” said Christophe Bourillon, CEO of the PYA. Over the last 12 months, the PYA team has been hard at work developing and testing this ground-breaking digital system which includes a secure digital stamp, so ensuring it meets the expectations and standards of the MCA.”
