Over the past years the Safety of Life at Sea, as well as the protection of the environment are issues of great concern for the maritime world. The turn to these directions result in the increase of rules and regulations, with which a shipping company is obliged to comply. How is the ship’s everyday operation being affected and what is the cost the shipping companies should bear in order to remain competitive? How difficult is for a complex modern vessel to remain profitable and safe at the same time? The purpose of this paper is to identify if and to what extend the rules & regulations contribute to the vessel’s workload, to investigate how the seafarers themselves perceive this new way of working and what is finally the risk of the additional paperwork onboard the vessels. Last, a financial valuation takes place so that the vessels’ operational expenses increase to be presented in relation to the past years, when the shipping companies’ operational corner stone was the empirical expertise.
