Witherby  Connect

Witherby Connect is the maritime industry library accessible from your browser.

Supported by all modern browsers, with nothing to install, Witherby Connect allows for streamlined, flexible access to a large range of maritime publications.

Witherby Connect is the safest way to access your maritime publications and flag State regulations online.

Witherby Connect was developed by our in-house technical experts and was created fundamentally with cyber security in mind. Adding an additional layer of security, Witherby Connect runs within a browser sandbox, meaning it cannot interact with other files stored on the computer or network. This removes the risk of the effects of a cyber attack when using Witherby Connect.

Witherby Connect complies with the MSC-FAL.1/Circ.3 cyber risk management policy referenced in IMO Resolution MSC.428(98).

No installation required.
Witherby Connect is browser based hybrid software, meaning that it runs in web browsers, yet behaves like desktop software, with absolutely nothing to install.

Witherby Connect is not limited to one device and can be accessed on any computer or tablet that is linked to the internet.

Works on low connection speeds
Ships with download speeds as low as 0.3 Mbps can access Witherby Connect while deep sea.

Designed with the new IMO requirements on cyber security in mind.

Use on and offline
Witherby Connect provides flexible access. Publications can be viewed while connected to the internet and are downloaded to the browser’s cache for access offline, making it suitable for use even when internet access cannot be guaranteed.

Access all major industry publications and guidance, instantly and easily.
